His Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, disclosed this in a statement.
Many Nigerians have been eager to hear what the President will have to say on the raging COVID-19 pandemic for which Nigeria has recorded 97 confirmed cases.
Adesina said: “President Muhammadu Buhari will broadcast to the nation Sunday, March 29, 2020, at 7 pm.
“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.”
However, Nigerians on twitter have started forecasting what the outcome of Buhari’s address to the citizens will be.
President Muhammadu Buhari to finally address Nigerians today by 7pm.
Let’s hear from our President, guys.

I hope the President Muhammadu Buhari's broadcast isn't a prerecorded broadcast oh.
If he can't host a live media chat with him answering questions from the press then it's bulshit. https://t.co/mETT5HuI8Q

President Muhammadu Buhari isn't vocal. It's like, they always force him to address the people before he knows the right thing to do.
So if they was no rumors about him having Coronavirus, he won't say anything in this crisis?
This is not the kind of leader i'm interested in.
