Buhari holds maiden presidential media chat Wednesday

President Muhammadu Buhari will hold his maiden media chat on Wednesday at the State House, Abuja.

Sources at the Villa said the chat, slated for 7pm, would be aired live on some television and radio stations as well as other platforms.

Mr. Buhari has come under severe criticism lately due to his frequent patronage of foreign media since assumption of office on May 29 this year.

The president often made important policy statements whenever he travels on official engagements outside the country.

It was observed that during the past administration, Nigerians were asked to forward questions to the president or call the chat room, but the telephone lines were perpetually put on busy mode, while the questions sent through social media platforms were hardly considered.

It is not clear if the media chat by Mr. Buhari on Wednesday would accept calls from the public, apart from a panel of journalists.

    In sharp contrast to the rigorous U.S presidential debates where the electorate have a chance to evaluate the candidates, the last time a presidential debate was organised in Nigeria, PMB recorded a NO SHOW!
    Let’s pray he turns up this time.

    *i expect he will be asked about the Zaria massacre..and i hope he will not tow the embarrassing position towed by Adesina; ‘IT’S A MILITARY AFFAIR’!

    SMH…

      Did Jonathan appear in 2011? How many times did Jonathan address the media? You need to be fair in your comments.

      • B. Januzi

        Jonathan ‘dodged’ then, and I found it Shameful and amusing. All discerning knew he was not up to it.
        Same thing played out in 2015. PMB was not up to it..showed a clean pair of heels! I also found it amusing and embarrassing that one who aspires to lead Africa’s largest economy would fret at the idea of a debate.
        So, are you suggesting I should pretend PMB was not terrified of the debate because jonathan failed to appear previously??
        Strange logic. Very strange.
        I really think you need to be honest and objective in your comments.

          Same thing when you folks asking Buhari to start probing all the past presidents and Head of states starting from Zik and Awolowo. Now you see how silly and a distraction it is. Good.

          “PMB was not up to it..showed a clean pair of heels!”

          And who did NIgeria voted for on March 28, 2015?
          Buhari!

    • Julius

      Jonathan did the debate and what did we get from his presidency ? Looting us blind ? Sharing the funds meant to buy weapons to fight BK ? Billion dollars stashed in the overseas bank in his code name ? . Wait till Buhari reveal what the FBI, CIA gave him about Jonathan and his gangs. Come back and talk about debate then.

      “the last time a presidential debate was organised in Nigeria, PMB recorded a NO SHOW”

      The one that was organised by the disgraced fraudster Raymond Dokpesi’s AIT?

    ALL THESE UNCULTURED AND MISGUIDED COMMENTS BY PEOPLE OF LOW INTELLIGENCE SHOULD BE CONDEMNED. NIGERIANS SHOULD BE GRATEFUL TO GOD AND PMB THAT WE HAVE A PRESIDENT WHO WILL NOT STEAL THEIR KOBO, WHO WILL NOT DISTRIBUTE THE PEOPLES MONEY TO ALL SORTS OF EVIL CHARACTERS AND WHO IS READY TO REBUILD THE COUNTRY FROM jonathan’s AND pdp’s DESTRUCTIONS. WITHIN TWO YEARS OF HIS PRESIDENCY, WE ALL SHALL EXPERIENCE TOTAL CHANGE FROM ALL THE PAST EVIL, DIABOLICAL AND CRIMINAL PAST ADMINISTRATIONS.
