Sep 03 (THEWILL) – Lagos Talks 91.3 FM, the community radio station, celebrated its sixth anniversary with a town hall on grassroots governance.
The public meeting, themed “Bridging the Gap between the Governed and the Government”, was held on August 25 in Agboyi-Ketu LCDA.
Panelists for the event were Dele Oshinowo, President of Agboyi-Ketu LCDA; Femi Saheed, Member of the House of Assembly; and Kafilat Ogbara, Commissioner, Lagos State Audit Commission/Kosofe Federal Constituency Candidate.
The meeting was the culmination of a week-long community engagement that began on August 22, with the “Lagos City Activation” which saw radio station representatives in strategic locations across Lagos , from island to mainland.
The ‘Lagos Town Hall Meetings’, a quarterly off-station event, believe that instead of just complaining, as citizens, it is important to constructively engage political, religious and community leaders.
Among other things, Lagos Talks aims to get governments at the local level to be more accountable to their communities, to create an avenue for representatives and people to engage, as well as to encourage that governance begins at the base.
