Maiduguri - The Presidential Advisory Committee on National Dialogue says it has received a total of 36 memoranda from individuals and organisations during its sitting in Maiduguri on Wednesday.

The Chairman of the committee, Senator Femi Okoromu, disclosed this while fielding questions from newsmen in Maiduguri.

Okoromu said that the committee was overwhelmed by the large number of turnout at the sitting.

"We are satisfied with the outcome of the sitting in Maiduguri."

Okoromu said that the massive turnout was an indication that Nigerians were in support of the idea behind the conference.

"We are here to seek people’s opinion on the agenda for the conference, its duration as well as composition, among others."

"We are glad that Nigerians came out in their numbers to say their minds on what they wanted at the conference."
