Opposition raises concern over Buhari’s fitness as president again misspeaks at rally (Video)

President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday made some embarrassing blunders in his remarks in Warri, Delta State when he presented his party’s flag to Great Ogboru, the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate in the state.

Mr Buhari was in Delta State to campaign for re-election.

Adams Oshiomhole, the National Chairman of the APC, gave the APC flag to Mr Buhari for the president to hand over to Mr Ogboru, as a governorship candidate and leader of the party’s electioneering campaign in the state.

“I am handing over this flag of honour to our presidential candidate,” Mr Buhari said erroneously, as he was about to perform the brief task.

The dignitaries who were on the stage with the president quickly corrected him. “Gubernatorial candidate,” they quipped in.

The president tried to correct himself but ended up saying “senatorial candidate” instead.

Again, he was corrected. But still, he could not get it right.

“Governortorial candidate,” Mr Buhari said finally, and then thanked those who pointed out the faux pas.

He handed over the flag to Mr Ogboru.

As both men shook hands, the president could be heard saying, “Madam, I wish you luck” to a woman who appeared to be Mr Ogboru’s wife. Watch the video below:
