The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), will make a broadcast to the nation this evening at 7pm, the State House has said.
“President Muhammadu Buhari will broadcast to the nation Sunday, March 29, 2020 at 7pm.
“Television, radio and other electronic media outlets are enjoined to hook up to the network services of the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA) and Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria (FRCN) respectively for the broadcast”, a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, said a few minutes ago.
Nigerians have clamoured for a broadcast by Buhari over the raging coronavirus pandemic.
However, his minders said Buhari’s style was to work and not to make a broadcast.
It’s unclear why he has made a U-turn.
