By Nudoiba Ojen

Nigerians are expectant as President Bola Tinubu will on Sunday address Nigerians in his first Independence Day broadcast.

The Special Adviser to the President (Media & Publicity), Chief Ajuri Ngelale, said the nationwide broadcast is scheduled for 7am on Sunday, October 1.

Ajuri, in a statement, 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”.

Among others, Nigerians are expecting declarations by the President which would make the organised labour call off the strike which it has fixed to begin on Tuesday, October 2.

The planned nationwide strike, according to the organised labour, is to, among others, “force the government to address its alleged insensitivity to the plights of Nigerians as a result of the removal of petrol subsidy and continuous demonstration of unwillingness and complete lack of initiative”.

The two labour centers had equally advised Nigerians to stockpile foodstuffs because the strike would shutdown economic activities in the country.
