President Muhammadu Buhari will hold his first media chat on Wednesday, December 30, 2015.

Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina says “in the course of the programme, which will be broadcast live on the network services of the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA) and the Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria (FRCN), President Buhari will answer questions from a panel of journalists on a broad range of current national issues. The Presidential Media Chat will begin at 1900 hours.

“Other television and radio stations in the country may hook-up to NTA and FRCN to relay the programme to their viewers and listeners”.

It would be the maiden local media chat by the otherwise taciturn Nigerian President whose answers to press questions often come in one liners and soundbites.
