By Kingsly Kanayo

The Chief of Staff to the President of the Senate, Sen. Isa Galaudu on Thursday in Abuja revealed that facebook will be offering technical support to the Senate to enhance the usage of the application as e-Parliament tool.

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 Facebook team, led by the African Head of Public Policy, will be in Nigeria at the weekend for the training slated for Monday.

The training is at no cost to the senate as Facebook offered to conduct the training for free.
