Breaking: No Presidential broadcast was planned for today – Presidency

President Buhari

The Presidency has debunked reports that President Muhammadu Buhari will be addressing the nation today to give updates on the COVID-19 pandemic.

The national coordinator of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, Aliyu Sani, had stated, while speaking on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics, that Buhari will speak to Nigerians.

However, the special adviser to the president on media and publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, via his verified Twitter handle, has stated that no presidential broadcast was planned for today.

He added that whatever update available regarding the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) will be passed on by the Presidential Task Force (PTF) during its usual briefings.

No presidential broadcast on COVID-19 updates today. None was planned. Rather, the Presidential Task Force will during its usual media briefings bring the nation up to speed on the next steps,” the tweet reads.
