Barring any last minute change, President Muhammadu Buhari will again speak to the nation on the raging coronavirus pandemic in a live broadcast today, Monday, at 7 pm.
This was disclosed in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media & Publicity, Femi Adesina.
Adesina urged all media outlets to hook up to the president’s broadcast on the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA) and Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria (FRCN).
The purpose of the nationwide broadcast is not unconnected with the total lockdown imposed on Lagos, Ogun and the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja by the president in a bid to contain the spread of the novel coronavirus.
“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,” Adesina said.
