President Muhammadu Buhari, has committed a political blunder, by saying that he came into Office, on the “19th of May, 2015”.
The President made this grave error on Wednesday, at the Presidential Campaign rally of the All Progressives Congress, APC, which held at Lokoja, the capital of Kogi State, while thanking the crowd for turning up at a short notice.
“I am very impressed at this very short notice, you turned out for so many hours, standing in the sun to see us and to listen to us”, he said. “I assure you that I am very aware of your appreciation of the efforts for what we were able to deliver, since we came in, 19th of May, 2015.
All we are trying to do is to remind you to think, ‘where were we in 2015, when we came in, where are we now?’ What have we been able to achieve with the resources available to us?” Recall, that President Buhari became President on May 29, 2015, after contesting the Presidential election three times, in 2003, 2007, and 2011; eventually defeating then incumbent President, Goodluck Jonathan, of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, at the March 28, 2015 Presidential election.
Elsewhere, a former Aide to former President, Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri, has reacted to the report that President Muhammadu Buhari stumbled during the All Progressives Congress, APC, rally, in Lokoja, Kogi State, on Wednesday. Omokri, in a tweet, stated that the incident was an indication that President Buhari belongs to the retirement home.
The former Presidential Aide, called on members of Buhari’s family, to counsel him into retirement, because he is not healthy.
He belongs in a retirement home, not in the Presidency. This man is not healthy. Those who love him should tell him to ReturnToDaura.
Meanwhile, the Coalition of United Political Parties, CUPP, had also claimed that the purported collapse of President Buhari, during the rally of the APC, in Lokoja, the Kogi State capital, vindicated their stand that, “he is physically unfit to continue in office”.
