President Muhammadu Buhari is set to address Nigeria on the ongoing #EndSARS protests across the country.
“Following detailed briefing by security chiefs on the current situation in the country, President Muhammadu Buhari will make a national broadcast, today, October 22, 2020 at 7pm.
“Television, radio and other electronic media outlets are enjoined to hook up to the network services of the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA) and Radio Nigeria respectively as the President addresses the Nation later this evening, at 7pm, a presidential media aide, Bashir Ahmad, tweeted Thursday evening.
Recall that the National Security Adviser, Babagana Monguno, had earlier urged Nigerians to wait for President Buhari’s solutions to the current violence across the country “in the next couple of hours”.
Mr Monguno disclosed this in an interview with State House correspondents at the end of a meeting of the National Security Council presided over by the President.
Although he did not disclose the nature of the solutions, he said they would be agreeable to all parties concerned.
He said, “The President himself, I have just left his office, is also going to deal with these issues in a specific manner apart from what has just taken place in council.
“I believe in the next couple of hours, Mr President will come up with certain solutions that will be agreeable to the entire federation.”
