Adesina, however, said no presidential broadcast was planned.

He wrote: “No presidential broadcast on COVID-19 updates today.

“None was planned. Rather, the Presidential Task Force will during its usual media briefings bring the nation up to speed on the next steps.”

Buhari had announced a gradual easing of the lockdown in the federal capital territory (FCT), Ogun and Lagos states to curb the spread of the coronavirus in the country.

But the task force led by Boss Mustapha, secretary to the government of the federation, has often lamented that Nigerians are not abiding by the guidelines, including social distancing and the use of face masks.
