Based on recent occurrences worldwide, is there really a genuine reason @MBuhari needs to address the nation? What exactly do we need him to say to us? Please wash your hands, restrict movement? The health minister represents the President. #daggersdrawn, #COVID19NIGERIA

Nigeria is not ready for #COVID19NIGERIA, and has never been ready for anything, No plans whatsoever.
They just issue statements with future tenses (pending).
it makes everything looks like it’s all about corruption and with no good intent but to confuse the citizens.
