Nigerian journalist, Kadaria Ahmed, will dissect the newly-passed Petroleum Industry Governance Bill with a show that she debuts on Channels Television Wednesday night, her media office said Tuesday.
The show, themed: “The Core”, will air every first Wednesday of the month from 8-9 p.m. and feature policy makers and a live audience, her office said in a statement to PREMIUM TIMES.
“The Core” was inspired by the need to have more indepth look into government policies and social issues and how they affect each and every one of us as citizens,” it said.
Tayo Alasoadura, Chairman of Senate Committee on Upstream Petroleum, has been invited to expand on issues around the bill on tonight’s programme.
He will be joined by a representative of the Ministry of Petroleum and Femi Omotayo, CEO of AOS Orwell, an oil servicing firm.
Members of the National Assembly, representatives from oil and gas companies, oil and gas labour unions, journalists, and civil society groups and others will form part of the studio audience on tonight’s edition, the statement said.
Subsequent editions of the show will feature equally critical issues of national importance, with stakeholders in the relevant sectors bringing their expertise and experience to bear in positive and constructive discussions.
Outside audience from across the world are invited to join the conversation via the hashtag: #NGtheCore on Twitter, Facebook and other social media platforms.
Ms. Ahmed is a member of the judging panel of the Wole Soyinka Centre for Investigative Journalism and sits on the Board of Trustees of Premium Times Centre for Investigative Journalism.
