The former lawmaker representing Kaduna Central Senatorial District, Shehu Sani, has reacted to the decision of President Muhammadu Buhari to cancel the nationwide broadcast.
Naija News had earlier reported that the president on Monday cancelled the expected nationwide broadcast.
Following the decision of President Buhari, the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 announced a continuation of the first phase of the gradual easing of lockdown in Abuja, Lagos and Ogun States.
Sani Aliyu, the National Coordinator of PTF, on Sunday has told Nigerians to expect Buhari’s broadcast on Monday.
Aliyu stated this when he appeared on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics.
Sani while reacting to the development noted that the President may have taken the decision in order to avoid lashes from angry Nigerians.
He tweeted, “Baba [Buhari] wanted to come out and talk to you [Nigerians], [and when] he peeped through the Window, instead of each of you holding a notebook and a pen, you were holding stones. And he just went back to Za[the] living room. Return your stones from where you picked them.”
