Nigeria @60: Buhari To Address Nigerians From Eagle Square
This is contrary to the annual tradition which sees sitting Presidents addressing the nation through nationwide broadcast at 7am on such days.
The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, announced the development on Wednesday in a statement titled, ‘October 1: President Buhari to address the nation from Eagle Square.’
The statement read, “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.”
