Senator Oluremi Tinubu’s Town Hall Meeting

On Wednesday, Senator Oluremi Tinubu advertised that she’ll be hosting a town hall meeting for her constituents. She represents Apapa, Eti-Osa, Surulere, Lagos Island & Lagos Mainland local governments.

Holding public officials accountable is part of the ‘P’ in our R|S|V|P Campaign. With our partners, ReclaimNaija, we sent text messages to those in our database and publicized the event online as an opportunity for engagement.

At Muson Centre, those who showed up were turned away because they did not have invitation letters!

We are following up with Mrs Tinubu’s office and we will share more information.
