The Centre for Democracy and Development (CDD), Abuja, has concluded plans to organize its inaugural Buharimeter Town Hall Meeting.
The town hall aimed at bridging the gap between the government and governed is expected to bring together Federal government of Nigeria, academics, civil society, political parties, members of the diplomatic community and other relevant stakeholders.
This town hall is organised to assess the one year in office of President Muhammad Buhari and his All Progressive Congress (APC) government.
It will afford the government an opportunity to report back to her constituents and give the citizenry an opportunity to engage directly with government on burning national issues.
We at the CDD believe that this interaction is critical to strengthening democratic accountability in Nigeria.
The meeting is slated to hold on Thursday, June 2, 2016 at Sheraton Hotel and Towers, Kwali Ladi Way, Abuja, between 10am and 1pm.
The Honourable Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, will lead the government delegation to the meeting.
The meeting will be broadcast live on African Independent Television (AIT) and livestream/live-tweet on Amplified Radio, Premium Times and social media platforms.
Buharimeter is a project of CDD, supported by the Open Society Initiative for West Africa (OSIWA) and the Department for International Development (DfID).
It is conceptualized to provide methodical and systematic assessment and evidence-based report on the performance of President Muhammadu Buhari’s (PMB) administration against its electoral promises.
