The Senate Wednesday asked President Muhammadu Buhari to address the nation over what his administration is doing to prevent the spread of coronavirus in Nigeria.

Since the first case was recorded, on February 27,  in Nigeria, Buhari has not addressed the nation.


But the upper legislative chamber asked the president to address the nation to help make them adhere strictly to preventive measures.

It advised the president to also place a ban on airlines coming into the country.


The Senate also asked the executive to set aside intervention funds to tackle the coronavirus pandemic as well as quarantaine Nigerians returning from countries with over 1000 cases.

These resolutions followed a motion by Senator Danjuma Goje from Gombe state.


Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, said “If we feel we are safe, it will lead us to complacency.”

Nigeria earlier on Wednesday recorded five new cases of coronavirus, bringing the total number of confirmed cases in the country to eight.
