A twenty-three second video surfaced on the internet on Sunday evening showing President Buhari speaking about the disease outbreak in the world.
It came after critics and the Nigerian Senate called on the President to talk to Nigerians about what his government is doing to curb COVID-19's spread.
Also reposing the version of the clip which appeared to have been edited was Bashir Ahmed,
The president's media aide."We are collaborating with the Federal Health Ministry on protecting our people against # COVID-19. This is now a key priority for us as a nation," the president is heard saying in the video clip which showed he was addressing an audience.
"I therefore advise you to ensure that there are adequate medical arrangements and other welfare criteria," he said before the clip ended abruptly.
