Some had even believed that the President had contracted coronavirus, following the declaration that his chief of staff had tested positive to the disease.
It has triggered several reactions from Twitter users who are insisting that Buhari addresses the nation.
However, the Nigerian government claims Buhari is in good condition but critics disagree.
They argue that news that his Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari, tested positive to the deadly disease puts the president at risk.
However, more cases of coronavirus have been reported in Nigeria.
The National Center for Disease Control (NCDC) gave an update on Twitter Thursday night.
It tweeted that new patients have been confirmed in FCT (1), Bauchi (1) and Lagos (12).
“Of the 14, 6 were detected on a vessel, 3 are returning travellers into Nigeria & 1 is close contact of a confirmed case.”
The agency added that as at 7:35 pm 26th March, there were 65 confirmed cases, 3 discharged and 1 death
