Buhari commences town hall meetings as alternative to TV debate

Happenings

The presidential candidate of the All Progressive Congress, Muhammadu Buhari has opted to interact with Nigerians directly by organizing town hall meetings across the country, reports Premium Times.

The strategy would enable him and his running mate, Yemi Osinbajo explain directly to citizens the policy thrust of their envisaged administration and how the set objectives will be achieved.

Buhari in statement by the Director of Media and Publicity of his campaign organisation, Garba Shehu, said he was compelled to chart this course because of the compelling need to have a person-to-person interactive sessions during which pertinent questions will be posed to him and Osinbajo and responses provided.

The first of such town hall meetings started on Monday in Lagos with a public interaction between Buhari and representatives of Organised Private Sector.

On Tuesday, the town hall meeting will hold in Kano with traders and market associations.

Thereafter, the meeting will hold in Benin with labour and civil society leaders.
