Nigerians and indeed the rest of the world will have another opportunity to be informed on the policies and actions of President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration as the Presidential Media Chat holds on Sunday, September 29, 2013 at 7pm.
During the course of the programme, the president will respond to questions from a selected panel of journalists on topical national issues including policies and actions of his administration.
This will be the second media chat President Jonathan will be hosting since he assumed office in 2011 with the first edition still fresh in the mind of viewers and listeners alike as the famous “I don’t give a damn” response to a question on the implications of the president’s refusal to make public his assets, generated furore.
A statement issued on Saturday by the president’s special adviser on media and publicity, Dr. Reuben Abati, advised “Members of the public, who have questions they will like the President to respond to on the programme, may send them in via Twitter to @mediachatng1.”
The statement further stated that “The programme will be broadcast live on the network services of the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA), the Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria (FRCN) and the Voice of Nigeria (VON).”
Other television and radio stations were advised to connect to the federal government owned NTA and FRCN to relay the programme to their viewers and listeners.
