Finally, President Buhari is ready to come out and address the citizens of his country today at 7PM.
This has being a controversial topic on different media platforms, TV, radios, web, name it.
While some Nigerians insisted that there was need for Buhari to address the nation, the representatives of the presidency argued there was no need for such address.
They said Mr. President was working tirelessly to protect Nigerians and keep them safe from Coronavirus pandemic.
Yesterday 28th March, Mr. president had a meeting with Nigeria Center for Disease Control (NCDC) representation to receive briefing at the state house.
The pictures surfaced on punch website and other social media platforms.
Despite that, there were heated arguments on the social media over whether or not the pictures were Photoshop images or original.
While up until now, many still dont believe the fact that Buhari will address the nation as promised.
Recall some news media have already announced that Buhari left the country for treatment at Cuba with his CoS Abba Kyari earlier last week.
To make the announcement more authentic, the Senior Special Assistant to President Buhari on Media and Publicity Garba Shehu took to his twitter handle to announce the broadcast today.
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.
