Dele Alake, the Special Adviser on Strategy, Communication and Special Duties of President Bola Tinubu, has announced that the president will address Nigerians on Monday (today) at 7 pm.
While making the announcement on Monday morning, Alake said, “President Bola Ahmed Tinubu will make a broadcast to the nation on Monday, July 31, 2023, at 7 pm.
“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.”
AN24 learnt that the broadcast may not be unconnected to the removal of subsidy on petrol, and its accompanying effect on the cost of living of Nigerians.
Recall that the Nigeria Labour Congress last week in a statement jointly signed by its National President, Joe Ajaero, and Secretary-General, Emmanuel Ugboaja, in Abuja, faulted the Tinubu administration over its “unfriendly” policies while adding that the administration had continued to treat Nigerians as slaves.
The association has also hinted that it will embark on a nationwide strike to shutdown the nation following the hardship.
