#OpenNASS TV SHOW Auditions!

In a build up to the debut of #OpenNASS Show on Channels TV, we held auditions for shortlisted applicants aspiring to be anchors for the show.

#OpenNASS TV Show is set to bring the national assembly closer to the citizens. Coming to your TV screens soon – watch out!

For now, the conversation continues on Social Media with #OpenNASS.



Next Wednesday will make it 660 DAYS since our Chibok Girls were abducted.

3 days ago, 2 suicide bombers killed 16 people and injured many others at a market and military checkpoint in Chibok. This happened on the day the market was reopened after a long period of closure. In reaction to this, the Nigerian Military has placed a curfew on the town in order to track down other intending bombers. We are however yet to receive any public address by the President on this.

On another note, the BBOG group has warned government agencies against siphoning funds meant for the rehabilitation and welfare of the abducted girls’ parents.

We will continue to demand from our government and remind them that all Nigerian lives matter!

Join a gathering in your city to stand for our girls:

Abuja – Unity Fountain, Daily, 4:30 – 6pm
Lagos – Falomo Roundabout, Ikoyi, Saturdays, 11am-1pm
Osogbo – Freedom Park, Sundays, 5pm
