President Jonathan to broadcast to nation Tuesday

President Goodluck Jonathan

President Goodluck Jonathan will address the nation Tuesday, the second time in nine days.

A statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Reuben Abati, said the address would be aired live at 7 a.m. on the network services of the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA) and the Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria (FRCN).

It is not clear what the President plans to say.

In his October 1 address, the President claimed Transparency International had endorsed his administration’s anti-corruption efforts, a claim the global anti-corruption agency promptly denied.

It is not clear if the President will use tomorrow’s broadcast to apologise for the gaffe.

But presidency sources said Mr. Jonathan might address the nation on the impending handover of the contentious Bakassi Peninsula to Cameroon.
