Other members of the committee, according to Senator Tuarki’s spokes-man,include Alhaji B ala Safiyanu Jahun, Alhaji Maikudi Hadejia, Alhaji Suleiman Ibrahim Marke, Alhaji Isah Alkassim, Alhaji Mustapha Yandutse, among others.

Amongst its term of reference are: holding a consultative meeting with officials of the three suggested parties in working out modalities for a smooth transfer and mutual working relations, among others.
