Video: Again, Tinubu Goofs, Calls Dolapo Osinbajo Buhari’s Wife

One of the national leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has yet again made another “verbal mistake” while delivering a speech during the book launch of First Lady, Mrs Aisha Buhari.

At the launch of the First Lady’s biography titled, “Aisha Buhari: Being Different”, the former Lagos Governor goofed as he incorrectly described Mrs. Dolapo Osinbajo, the Vice President’s mistress as wife of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Tinubu, who was the Chairman of the occasion, made the error while giving salutations to special guests in the course of his speech.

Many have expressed concerns over the second gaffe in less than two weeks by the APC chieftain, who has been going round the country to build momentum for his presidential bid.

It would be recalled, Tinubu recently made a major gaffee, when he asked the federal government to recruit 50 million youths into Nigeria’s armed forces, only for him to retract the outrageous proposal almost 24 hours after.

A statement by Tinubu’s media Aide, Mr Tunde Rahman later said the APC chieftain meant 50,000 youths, describing his boss’ earlier statement as an “accidental verbal mistake.”

However, the verbal mistake generated massive reactions from Nigerians who described the call as laughable given the fact that the total population of Nigeria is about 200 million.

Also, this latest gaffe has become a major talking point online as Nigerians await the descriptive phrase that would come from Tinubu’s media handlers, while retracting the latest verbal error by the politician which has become a trending meme online.
