He commended the Federal Government for the initiative to engage the people and keep them informed of its activities.

Lai Mohammed- Minister of Information and Culture

The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, on Monday called on political leaders to build one Nigeria devoid of partisanship, ethnicity and religious differences.

Mohammed made the call when he led a team of ministers on a courtesy visit to Gov. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State.

He commended the governor for the reception accorded his entourage not minding that he is in an opposition party.

He noted that political parties and their leaders must have the single goal of serving the interest of the nation.

"It is unique that we are here today in Enugu, an opposition state, and since we came we have not seen any difference whether we are in APC- or PDP-controlled state.

"This is very important because this is the kind of Nigeria we want to build, a Nigeria where people will have one agenda to build Nigeria," he said.

The minister thanked the governor and his cabinet members for the cooperation and support in hosting the 5th Town Hall Meeting.

In his address of welcome, the governor said that Enugu had always been the political capital of the South East from Independence, adding that the choice of the city for the meeting was not out of place.

"This is a welcome initiative and I am sure it will be of immense benefits to all the states and the people of the South East," he said.

The town hall meeting was conceived by the Federal Ministry of Information and Culture to interact with the people on the programmes of the Federal Government.

It gives the opportunity for ministers to engage directly with the people, telling them the achievements and challenges of the government and also giving answers to their questions.

The ministers slated for the forum are Mohammed, Audu Ogbeh, Chris Ngige, Geoffrey Onyeama, Isaac Adewole, Jubril Usman and Okechukwu Enelama.
