Former Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Timi Frank, on Monday, described President Muhammadu Buhari’s pre-recorded broadcast to the nation on Sunday evening as a monumental embarrassment to Nigerians.
“The broadcast was worse than COVID-19 because it failed to outline a specific roadmap on how Nigeria can win this invisible war.
“Any measure from the Federal Government that does not advance Nigeria’s response to the COVID-19 will ultimately hurt Nigerians.
“The President has not only lost precious response time, he is yet losing time while the rate of infection is steadily growing in the country.
“Nigerians were highly disappointed that instead of a live broadcast – with the media given the opportunity to seek clarifications for the benefit of Nigerians – the President opted for a pre-recorded and stilted message.
“I think Nigerians deserve something better from their President in the the face of this global scourge.”
He saluted Nigerians for their resilience in this trying moment and prayed for quick recovery for those undergoing treatment as a result of the virus.
He also urged Nigerians to intensify prayers for the pandemic to cease in the country.
