QUESTION OF THE DAY

Was the President’s tour a ‘Policy Evaluation Tour’ or a ‘Popularity Assessment Tour’?

 Following up the speeches of the President, one could detect that he did a lot of preaching and made a lot of promises to fulfill past unfulfilled promises.

Foroyaa will do a voice pop to find out how the people see the tour.
