The All Progressives Congress (APC) with support from the International Republican Institute (IRI) will host an External Communications Workshop for the Party’s state Publicity Secretaries in Abuja on Friday, May 12 and Saturday May 13, 2017.
The objectives of the two-day workshop include: developing a coordination framework; improving the capacity of spokespersons and developing a code of conduct, among others.
According to the APC’s National Publicity Secretary, Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi, the workshop is part of the Party’s strategies to enhance the capacity of spokespersons and to build an efficient communication system across the states.
Abdullahi said: “Our Party is a product of an efficient communication system. After the election, we are looking at strengthening our communication system and processes. And one way to do this is to enhance the capacity of our spokespersons.
“We also want to listen to them, to know what challenges they face, so we can correct any deficiency. I hope after the training, there will be new vigour and dynamism in our approach to the job. “
