President Bola Ahmed Tinubu will make a live broadcast to the nation at 7 pm


President Bola Ahmed Tinubu will make a broadcast to the nation at 7 pm today Monday, July 31, 2023.

Presidential spokesman Dele Alake, announced this in a statement today morning.

The statement said, 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.

It is unclear what the broadcast is all about but it comes at a time when the masses are complaining of nationwide hardship as a result of the removal of fuel subsidy, leading to hike in petrol price.

The president has repeatedly appealed for calm, saying his government is working hard to ensure that Nigerians live comfortably.

Tinubu attributed the current state to labour room pain, saying the gains are on the way.

His address comes on the eve of the nationwide protest of organised labour and amid the strike by the Nigerian Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) who rejected the 25% increment in basic salary recently announced by the federal government.

The association said that its earlier demand is for full restoration of the Consolidated Medical Salary Structure to its right value as at the time of the approval of the structure in 2009.
