CHRISTINE AMANPOUR TO INTERVIEW PRESIDENT JONATHAN TONIGHT
That's right! Christiane Amanpour, one of the world's most honored broadcast journalist must be digging deep at the moment as she gets ready to interview the President of Nigeria, Goodluck Jonathan.
Confirming what seem like a rumour, she tweeted on her twitter page @camanpour
"My interview with President Goodluck Jonathan of #Nigeria will air at 2100 & 2300 local Nigerian time on Wednesday night. @cnni"
Known for her bluntness and brutal confrontation, the interview tonight is said to be a moment of revelation as President Jonathan goes under the pressure of the prolific CNN broadcaster.
Many people has shown concern about the impact of the interview on Nigerians, and to observe some of Amanpour's tweets - "After Mali and Algeria, can #Nigeria get a grip on its own Islamic militant group? I'll ask NIGERIAN PRESIDENT GOODLUCK JONATHAN Wednesday!"
One might be quick to say that she's getting Mr. President ready for the hot seat. Whichever way it is, many are of the opinion that the credibility of Amanpour cannot in any way permit a staged interview.
