Buhari wants to address Nigerians one more time before handing over to Tinubu.
President Muhammadu Buhari will address the nation on the morning of Sunday, May 28, 2023, in what will be his farewell broadcast as the Commander-in-Chief, with President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, waiting in the wing.
This was disclosed by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, in a terse statement on Saturday, May 27, 2023.
The media aide said the broadcast will be made at 7 am, urging broadcast stations to beam it to Nigerians.
“President Muhammadu Buhari will make a farewell broadcast as President, Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces on Sunday, May 28, at 7 am.
“Television, radio stations and other electronic media outlets are enjoined to hook up to the network services of the Nigerian Television Authority and Radio Nigeria for the broadcast,” the statement read.
The special address will come barely 24 hours before the swearing-in of Tinubu and Senator Kashim Shettima as President and Vice President respectively.
