"God Bless PD.." - Tinubu Gathers Reactions, Suffers Goof In First Campaign Outing

The presidential candidate of the All Progressive Congress, APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has gathered reactions from Nigerians due to a ‘mis-word’ during a campaign outing.

Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has received a lot of criticism due to a gaffe he suffered in his speech at the flag off of his 2023 presidential campaign.

TopNaija reports that Tinubu, with some of the APC party members, including President Muhammadu Buhari, was in Jos, Plateau State, for the presidential campaign kick-off.

In the middle of his closing speech, the former Lagos State Governor suffered a slip of the tongue by mistakenly uttering the opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, while he had his party in mind.

“…I hand over back to the chairman of the party before he disciplines me for leaving the President waiting and keeping him standing. We are calling, inviting the national chairman to invite the President. At least to close this part of the ceremony. Thank you, God bless you, God bless Nigeria. God bless PD…APC,” he said.

Moreover, this isn’t the first time Tinubu goofed off in public as sometime in July, the APC presidential candidate also forgot the name of his party during an interview.

Tinubu was speaking to members of his party in public and almost addressed the APC as “Action Congress.”

However, he was quickly corrected by one of the aides who stood beside him.

Not only was that scenery, but in October 2022, Tinubu also caused quite a stir on social media after he said Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, had a vision of turning a “rotten situation to a bad one.”

The incident had sparked rumors that Tinubu, who had just returned from London at that time, might be suffering from dementia.

He was speaking at the seventh edition of KadInvest, an annual event organized by the Kaduna State Investment Promotion Agency.

We’re not going to let you run away, your vision, creativity and resiliency in turning a rotten situation to a bad one is necessary at this very critical time. That is why we are here today,” Tinubu told El-Rufai.

Critics of the APC Presidential Candidate have said Tinubu avoids debate in order not to goof.
