Nigerian Government To Launch Information App

The Federal Government of Nigeria launched an information app (Federal Government of Nigeria Information App (FGN IAPP) yesterday to help disseminate true and factual information about the government’s operations.

According to the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, who launched
the Information app in Abuja, “the federal government will not allow the media space to be dominated by those who are daily working to discredit the federal government and obfuscate its achievements.”

The app is supposed to serve as a medium “to send undiluted and factual information directly to Nigerians and bring about a paradigm shift in the way the government communicates with the citizens by ensuring that authentic and real-time information is delivered directly to them, irrespective of their location.”

Alhaji Mohammed also added that in addition to using the conventional and the Social Media, the federal government has introduced the Town Hall Meeting that has so far been held in Lagos, Kaduna, Kano, Enugu, Uyo and Abuja and provided a platform for cabinet ministers to interact directly with a cross section of Nigerians in a no-holds-barred session.
