The Senate has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to address Nigerians on the coronavirus in the country.
It also urged the federal government to shut down all international airports except Lagos and Abuja airports for easier monitoring of the disease.
The lawmakers asked the president to suspend the issuance of visa on arrival at the borders so as to check the spread of the pandemic.
This calls followed a point of order raised by Danjuma Goje (APC, Gombe) during plenary on Wednesday.
It comes amidst backlash on the president for failing to address the nation like some presidents of other countries have done.
