The special adviser to the President Muhammadu Buhari on publicity and media, Mr. Femi Adesina, made this known to the press some hours ago.

The nation patiently waited on the president with high expectations before his April 27, 2020 speech. But few hours before President Muhammadu Buhari addressed the country, a draft copy of the presidential statement went viral on all social media platforms. The drafted memo of the presidential speech was inundated with errors.

The viral copy showed some striking similarities with the speech read by the President. However, the drafted text indicated that the ongoing lockdown in Lagos, Ogun state, and the Federal Capital Territory Abuja would be lifted on Monday, May 2, 2020. While the official presidential address to the nation stated, “There would be a steady easing of lockdown in the three listed states, to be effective Monday, May 4, 2020".

Femi Adesina further stated that "if the perpetrator who leaked the unedited draft of the president's speech had unlimited access to sensitive information, he would not hesitate to do the same." The “enemy of the state” was tracked and apprehended with immediate effect.
