Longsuffering Nigerians unimpressed by FG’s #townhallmeeting


The Federal Government commenced the first in the series of town hall meetings on Monday (April 25) in Lagos State, with mixed reactions greeting the development.

The meeting, which is an interaction between the government and persons from different sectors of the economy, is expected to hold in six geo-political zones and two other cities, Abuja and Kano. Despite the government’s best efforts to explain its policy direction to the masses via these meetings, Nigerians are demanding concrete action that would translate to succor from the myriad of problems they are grappling with.

Those in attendance at the Lagos meeting are the Information Minister, Mr Lai Mohammed, that of Power, Works and Housing, Mr Babatunde Fashola, the Minister of State for Petroleum, Dr. Ibe Kachikwu, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, Minister of Industry, Trade and Investment, Dr. Okechukwu Enelamah and Minister for Transportation, Chibuike Amaechi.
