Why I have not addressed Nigerians on COVID-19 – Buhari


President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday explained why he has not considered it necessary to address Nigerians on the Coronavirus pandemic.

The President in a tweet on his Twitter handle -@MBuhari – also highlighted his administration’s efforts to check the spread of the disease that had killed about 9, 000 people across the globe.

The Senate had during the week urged President Buhari to address the nation on the outbreak of the Coronavirus in Nigeria.

The Presidency in turn described the senators’ call for the President to address Nigerians as cheap politics.

Buhari said: “Protecting Nigerians from the Coronavirus is a key priority for us as a government.

“We have the Ministry of Health and the Nigeria Center for Disease Control (NCDC) working round-the-clock with several other agencies, as well as state governments, to ensure this.

“I have absolute confidence in the relevant ministers in the cabinet, the Presidential Task Force on Coronavirus which I recently established, and the officials of the National Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), who are all providing constant updates and professional counsel.”
