The Federal Government is willing to dialogue with Nigerians through a series of town hall meetings in the renewed drive to recover the country from recession.

Acting President Yemi Osinbajo who gave the indication in a statement yesterday, assured that “we are committed to engagement with our people, and fixing the economy.”

Osinbajo disclosed that ministers have already gone round 8 states so far holding town hall meetings, with the most recent yesterday in Ilorin, Kwara State.

“There will be more of such meetings in the other states that are yet to be visited,” he said.

Osinbajo, according to the statement by his Senior Special Assistant on media and publicity, Laolu Akande, also commended the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris and his officers for handling last Monday’s protests with professionalism and respect for the rights of citizens.
