No Presidential broadcast on Coronavirus from President Muhammadu Buhari today, the Presidency has said.
Naija News reports that the Presidency debunked reports that President Buhari would be making a media broadcast today on the next phase of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic ease in the country.
This online news platform recalls that the National Coordinator of the presidential task force on COVID-19, Aliyu Sani, had said during an appearance on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics that President Buhari would address Nigerians in a national broadcast over the coronavirus pandemic today.
However, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, denied Sani’s claim, saying no presidential broadcast was planned today and that whatever update was available would be passed on by the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) during its usual briefings.
Giving the update on the micro-blogging site, Adesina wrote: “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 read.
