President Muhammadu Buhari will address the nation on Friday.
This was announced on Thursday in a statement issued by Femi Adesina, special adviser to the president on media and publicity.
According to Adesina, the address is in commemoration of Democracy Day.
“To commemorate Nigeria’s Democracy Day, President Muhammadu Buhari will broadcast to the nation on Friday, June 12, 2020 at 7am,” it read.
“Television and radio stations as well as other electronic media outlets are enjoined to hook up to the network services of the Nigerian Television Authority and Radio Nigeria respectively for the broadcast.”
In 2018, Buhari had approved June 12 as Democracy Day to honour MKO Abiola, presumed winner of the 1993 presidential election.
