With two years already spent by the incumbent administration, it has become important to create another opportunity to interact with representatives of the government who will give account of their stewardship to Nigerians. Economic recession, increasing inflationary, unemployment and poverty rates, renewed Boko Haram attacks, kidnapping, and separationist agitations in the country make it imperative to discuss what government is doing to addressing these challenges. Therefore, the town hall meeting will create platform for robust discussion on the state of Nigeria’s economy and security between government representatives and Nigerians. In addition, it will allow Nigerians and their representatives to explore potential solutions to the current economic and security challenges, and discuss practical steps needed to ensure that progress will be made in pursuing those solutions.

The town hall meeting will have the following Ministers present: Alhaji Lai Muhammed, Honourable Minister of Information and Culture; Mr Babatunde Raji Fashola (SAN), Honourable Minister of Power, Works and Housing; Chief Audu Ogbe, Honourable Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development; Mrs. Kemi Adeosun, Honourable Minister of Finance; Dr. Kayode Fayemi, Honourable Minister of Mines and Steel Development and Monsur Muhammed Dan Ali, Honourable Minister of Defence.
