#PresidentialMediaChat: The people's response

31 December 2015, 07:41Cindy Pierce

Abuja - Following President Muhammadu Buhari's maiden Media Chat last night, the reaction to the address has been varied, although largely negative.

In the aftermath of the Media Chat, which took place yesterday evening, we posted a question on our Facebook page to gauge the reaction of our readers to the answers given by the president. Although some readers did admit to being satisfied, a large majority seemed to have been left wanting.

While some claimed disappointment, one of our readers went as far as saying president Buhari was not able to answer the questions raised and that he failed "woefully" at addressing the pertinent issues facing Nigerian citizens.

Tribal tension was also felt in the aftermath of the Media Chat, with many feeling that Buhari catered to the needs of Igbos and failed to fully address the Biafra and their issues.

The reaction to Buhari's address was not all negative though, with some saying that he addressed crucial issues, commending him for a job well done.

What are your views? Do you think that President Buhari did well in addressing pertinent national issues? Share with us!
