Presidential Media Chat: Buhari’s maiden chat — LIVE UPDATES

President Muhammadu Buhari is tonight hosting his maiden Presidential Media Chat since assuming office on May 29 this year.

The challenges confronting Nigeria – insecurity, the economy, corruption, dearth of infrastructure – are still largely the same issues the last administration grappled with.

The presidency promised in the past to entertain questions from Nigerians via telephone, although the phone failed to work during those episodes of the programme.

Critics believe the phones were programmed not to work as a way of blocking citizens from asking the president embarrassing questions.

So, in case you are able to reach the president on the programme today, we suggest you put these questions we have raised to him, in addition to others you might have.

We also urge the editors, who will interview the president, to consider asking him some of the suggested questions.

Our reporters are providing live updates of the session.
