Buhari’s administration is ‘govt of lies by liars to perpetuate lies’ —Aisha Yesufu

The co-coordinator of Bring Back Our Girls (BBOG), Aisha Yesufu has called on Nigerians to forget the issue of a presidential address over the coronavirus issue.

She said there was no need to call for presidential address on the matter because “we do not have a President.”

The Nigerian Senate had earlier on Wednesday called on President Muhammadu Buhari to address citizens of his administration’s efforts to address the pandemic.

The Senate made the call after five more patients with Coronavirus were confirmed in the country, making the total of people suffering from the disease in Nigeria eight.

But in a tweet on her Twitter [email protected], the BBOG co-coordinator wrote:

“Dear Nigerians, we do not have a President. No need of wasting energy asking for a presidential address.

“Accepting that fact is part of solution. What then can we do to curb this virus going forward?
