Senators are to receive free Facebook training, says the Chief of Staff to the President of the Senate, Sen. Isa Galaudu on Thursday in Abuja.
Galaudu, in a letter sent to the senators inviting them for the event, said the training was in line with the promise of the leadership of the 8th Senate to utilise the social media.
“Senators and their aides receive training on use of facebook in line with the promise of the President of the Senate to ensure more representative legislature using e-parliamentary tools.
“This is a partnership between the Office of the Senate President and Facebook.
“Senators and aides who wish to participate in the programme should please email grsenatesocial@ gmail.com with their full names.’’
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), reports that the Facebook team, led by the African Head of Public Policy, will be in Nigeria at the weekend for the training slated for Monday.
According to the Special Assistant to the President of the Senate on Social Media, Bamikole Omishore, the training is at no cost to the senate as Facebook offered to conduct the training for free.
