None of the 109 Senators attended an online training organised on Monday by the office of the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, Punch is reporting.
The workshop was organised for the senators and their aides and it was aimed at strengthening their use of Facebook and Social media for effective communication on issues relating to Public Policy and Good Governance.
A Punch correspondent also observed that, less than 10 percent of the aides of the senators attended the event. Majority of those in attendance were from the senate president’s office.
Findings revealed that just 25 out of about 500 senators’ aides, actually turned up for the programme.
The Chief of Staff to the Senate President, Senator Isa Galaudu, had in a statement issued on Thursday, said the training was in line with the promise of the senate president to bring about, a more representative legislature through the use of technology and e-parliamentary tools.
He had said that the training, would be conducted by the Head of Policy at Facebook Africa and members of her team. But alas, nobody attended.
