President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday, made another gaffe during the presidential rally in Warri, Delta state when he referred to Great Ogboru, the state governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as “Presidential candidate”.
Naija News reports that President Buhari was to hand over the party’s flag to Ogboru who is the Delta State APC governorship candidate rather the President said: “I am handing over this flag of honour to our presidential candidate.”
A man on the stage to his left promptly corrected the President, saying “gubernatorial”, but Buhari responded with “to our senatorial candidate”.
Again, the man corrected Buhari, saying “gubernatorial” and this time, the President said “governortorial candidate”.
Watch the video below…
Me – I am hand over vhis flag with honor to our Presidential Candidate.
Crowd – Nooo
Me – Senatorial Candidate
Crowd – Nooo
Ogboru – (whispering) Governor, Governor!!
Me – Gubernatorial Candidate.
This is why I hate Southerners. Why didn't Ogboru open his big mouth since? pic.twitter.com/Skw9eGMiq7

Naija News reports that the development is coming a day after the President had on Wednesday during the presidential campaign rally in Lokoja, Kogi state, made a mistake about the time he assumed office.
Speaking at the campaign rally, President Buhari had said he assumed office on May 19, 2015, instead of May 29.
“I’m 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.
“I assure you that I am very aware of your appreciation of the efforts for what we were able to deliver since came in 19th of May, 2015,” Buhari had said.
