Lai Mohammed says Buhari Not Insensitive to Coronavirus
March. 21, 2020
Following calls by Nigerians on President Muhammadu Buhari to address the nation on the Coronavirus pandemic, the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed hads called for calm.
Speaking to newsmen after the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting on Wednesday, the minister said the president will address the country at the appropriate time.
He noted that whilst the president has not, by himself, addressed the country, his ministers and appointees are already saying much of the things Nigerians expect the president to say.
" I think what you want to hear from Mr President are the kind of things we are telling you," he said.
Popular Nigerians and critics of President Buhari, including Oby Ezekwesili and Reno Omokri have since taken to social media to lament what they describe as "morbid silence" in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Senate has also recently passed a resolution, urging the president to address the nation in order to allay fears and boost the confidence of the people.
Nigeria Thursday confirmed 8 new cases, taking its total to 11. Although several breakthroughs and recoveries have been recorded but many believe the country is not doing enough.
