Failed broadcast: IPOB leader, Kanu lambasts Buhari over lockdown

NNAMDI Kanu, leader of Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) has lambasted President Muhammadu Buhari for failing to address the nation on Monday on the Covid-19 state of affairs in the country.

In his tweet account, the IPOB leader said that failure to address the people after his lockdown was insensitive and points to abysmal failure.

“Cancellation of purported ‘presidential’ speech is recognition you cannot rule 200 million people with guns, few theatrical masks and deep fake engineered videos”, IPOB leader said.

However, the presidency in its disclaimer on the purported national Presidential broadcast on Monday stated that there was no such plan for a president’s broadcast to the nation on the said date, but stressed that the Presidential Task Force on Covid-19 had briefed the President on Sunday during which Buhari directed the PTF to work closely with state governors towards the fight including easing the lockdown.
