The Senior Special Assistant, SSA, to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media, Garba Shehu, had said two weks ago that the presidency will soon begin to hold town hall meetings with Nigerians.
Mr. Shehu made this known while answering reporters’ questions in Abuja. According to him, government decided to embark on such meetings because it has realized the importance of information communication to the people at the grassroots.
“I know that there is a plan that the Vice-President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo would start town hall meetings in zones.
“It would then be broken down to the states and so on. “Government realises that there is a need to take information to the people and there are steps that are being taken in order to ensure that is done,” he said.
