President Buhari addressed Nigerians March 22 about how his government is curbing coronavirus pandemic also known as COVID-19.

“We are working with the Federal Ministry of Health on protecting our citizens from #COVIK One-Nine”, Buhari said. “As a government, this is now a key priority for us”, he added.

“I therefore enjoin you to ensure that adequate medical provisions and other welfare requirements are afforded,” the president said before the clip abruptly ended.

The highlight of the short clip was when the President failed to pronounce covid-19 properly by calling it ‘COVIK 1-9’.
