President Muhammadu Buhari is set to address Nigerians on the situation of the country regarding the Coronavirus pandemic.

According to a terse statement by a presidential media aide, Femi Adesina, the President’s address will be broadcast to the nation on Sunday evening.

Mr Adesina added that the broadcast, scheduled for 7pm, will be on the Nigerian Television Authority, NTA, and Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria, FRCN.
