Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari, will no longer address Nigerians from Eagle Square, but from the confines of the Presidential Villa, as is the tradition, recanting an earlier plan as announced by his office on Wednesday.

Femi Adesina, who had initially told the nation that Buhari’s address would be presented at Eagle Square after which he would observe a military parade, came out some hours later to present a new plan of the President to switch to national broadcast via the media at 7am before proceeding to the venue of the anniversary parade that is scheduled to commence by 10am.

He had said earlier: “As part of activities commemorating the 60th independence anniversary of the country, President Muhammadu Buhari will address the nation from the Eagle Square, Abuja, on Thursday, October 1, 2020.

“The live address will commence after the anniversary parade beginning at 10am which will be covered by major television and radio stations especially the network services of the Nigerian Television Authority and the Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria.

“Please note that in view of the open-air live address, the traditional early morning October 1 presidential broadcast will not feature on Thursday.”

But in the latest statement, he said: “As part of activities commemorating the 60th independence anniversary of the country, President Muhammadu Buhari will broadcast to the nation on Thursday, October 1, 2020 at 7am.

“All television, radio and other electronic media outlets are enjoined to hook up to network services of the Nigerian Television Authority and the Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria respectively for the address.

“The President will thereafter, proceed to the Eagle Square, Abuja to review the anniversary parade and participate in other activities beginning at 10am, which will be covered live by major television and radio stations.

“This updated statement supersedes our earlier one indicating an open-air live presidential address on October 1.”
