Over one million people across the different social media platforms, last thursday, interacted with the governor of Ondo state, Dr Olusegun Mimiko, for about two hours on a wide range of issues of governance in ondo state in the last six and half years of his administration.
Data obtained from tweetreach.com , a foremost social media engagement analytics website revealed that #MimikoSpeaks, had 1,054,101 impressions.
A further breakdown of the statistics showed that 881,554 accounts were reached, with 785 tweets exchanged.
Speaking on the development, Chief Press Secretary to Ondo state governor, Eni Akinsola, said the programme recorded huge online traffic because Governor Mimiko saw the need to get uncensored questions and remarks from his people and friends of Ondo state.
According to him “We deliberately employed social media in order to make It a citizen participatory programme and the feedback we received was tremendous which goes to show that the policies and programmes of the Mimiko-led government are globally acceptable.
“It’s also a way of granting unfettered access to the people’s governor and further deepen his relationship with the good people of Ondo state”
It would be recalled that the hashtag, #MimikoSpeaks, was the third trending topic on twitter in Nigeria last thursday even hours after the programme ended.
