Some Nigerians have taken to social media to express their feelings about the planned nationwide broadcast of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, had announced this in a statement that Buhari is scheduled to address Nigerians by 7pm 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,” he said.
The President is expected to address Nigerians on the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic as some residents in Lagos, Ogun, and the Federal Capital Territory expect to know whether the lockdown would be extended or not as the lockdown is expected to end. tonight.
Some residents in Lagos and Ogun State have raised alarm about unrest in their communities and they expect the president to address the insecurity situation in the two states.
However, Nigerian social media users have taken their time to call out Buhari’s media on the planned broadcast. They asked the media aide not to waste Nigerians time by playing a recorded broadcast.
See some reactions below:
Femi Adesina should simply tell us he will address the nation by 7pm since he told us it's not @MBuhari style to address the nation at this critical time.

Femi Adesina looking at me & Curtis supporting him on @channelstv where he justified Baba’s last speech to continue feeding our school children at home as a palliative & selling fuel ⛽️ for 125 when Bonny light is selling at $19 to $22. Who has had his child fed since THEN? pic.twitter.com/3UTL5zLofE

Femi Adesina it's bit Buhari's style to address Nigerians. Now that Mr president has changed style, Let there be a provision for Q&A session with the media/journalist. The governor of Ogun state does it, Is it too much to ask for? I'm tired of this audio address. Thank you

Mr. President, as you prepare to address the demoralized citizens, pls be reminded that you cannot copy lockdown measures from Europe and U.S., without backing it up wit corresponding palliatives as being done in those countries.
