The Presidency has made a last minute U-turn, saying President Muhammadu Buhari will not address the nation again today, as Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, had told Nigerians at the weekend.
Buhari’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, made this known on Monday afternoon via Twitter.
He said instead of Mr. Buhari, the presidential Task Force on COVID-19 led by Boss Mustapha, would update the nation during its briefings.
Adesina tweeted, “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.”
