Buhari To Address Nigerians in Town Hall Meetings to Alternate TV Debate

General Muhammadu Buhari has opted to interact with Nigerians directly by organizing town hall meetings across the country.

The strategy would enable him and his running mate, Yemi Osinbajo explain directly to citizens the policy thrust of their envisaged administration and how the set objectives will be achieved.

Buhari, in statement by the Director of Media and Publicity of his campaign organisation, Garba Shehu, said he was compelled to chart this course because of the compelling need to have a person-to-person interactive sessions during which pertinent questions will be posed to him and Osinbajo and responses provided.
