The All Progressives Congress (APC) says a majority of Nigerians want a working president but that only a few want one who talks.
President Muhammadu Buhari has been criticised for not addressing citizens since the coronavirus outbreak in the country.
In a statement on Saturday, Lanre Issa-Onilu, APC spokesman, said the “grand efforts” by Buhari in tackling the virus could be seen by Nigerians.
Issa-Onilu said under the supervision of Buhari there is a “proactive network of national response structures working in tandem with all states”.
“A few Nigerians want a President whose preoccupation is talking, while the majority voted for a President who is deploying his energy to working. We all can see the effect of the grand efforts being led by President Muhammadu Buhari to contain the coronavirus (COVID-19) global pandemic in Nigeria,” he said.
“The efficiency of the field workers and other state actors has ensured we are able to minimize the spread so far with many states taking proactive steps to forestall wide spread of the very infectious virus
