President Muhammadu Buhari will make a farewell broadcast as President, Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces on Sunday, May 28, at 7am.

The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, disclosed this in a statement on Saturday.

He enjoined television, radio stations and other electronic media outlets to hook up to the network services of the Nigerian Television Authority and Radio Nigeria for the broadcast.

Buhari will hand over the baton of leadership to the President-elect on Monday as the 16th President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

The president’s last nationwide broadcast was in February when he addressed the lingering naira scarcity issues at that time.

The Central Bank of Nigeria had fixed February 10 as the new deadline for the exchange of old naira notes for newly redesigned ones after shifting the deadline from January 31 initially fixed as the deadline.

Many Nigerians had entered into a long period of scarcity of the new N200, N500, and N1,000 notes and this had plunged the country into hardship and shut down many businesses. There had also been violent protests in some cities.

To ease the situation, President Buhari had ordered the Central Bank Governor to allow the old N200 (two hundred naira note) to circulate till April 10, 2023, when it would cease to be a legal tender.

Meanwhile, the Supreme Court later overruled Buhari and gave December 31 as the deadline.(www.naija247news.com)
