Femi Adesina, presidential spokesman, says President Muhammadu Buhari will not address the nation on COVID-19 on Monday.
Writing via his Twitter handle, Adesina said any update on the COVID-19 response will be given by the presidential task force (PTF).
Sani Aliyu, the national coordinator of the task force, had during a Channels TV programme, said Buhari would address Nigerians on COVID-19 following the end of the first phase of the lockdown measures.
He was speaking after the task force presented a situation report on the disease to the president.
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.”
