President Goodluck Jonathan will Wednesday host a special edition of the Presidential Media Chat, his office announced Tuesday.
This was disclosed in a press statement by the Presidential Spokesman, Reuben Abati, stating that the president will respond to questions from a panel of journalists on current national issues.
PREMIUM TIMES understands the interview will focus mainly on the general elections which have been rescheduled from February to March 28 and April 11.
The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, had postponed the elections citing security challenges in the country.
The military has since said the security challenges posed by the Boko Haram will be brought under control before the expiration of the six weeks.
“During the programme, which will be broadcast live on the network services of the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA), Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria (FRCN) and the Voice of Nigeria (VON) from 1900 Hours, President Jonathan will respond to questions from a panel of journalists on current national issues.
“All other television and radio stations in the country may hook-up to NTA and FRCN to relay the programme to their viewers and listeners,” Mr. Abati said in the statement.
