Nigerians Accuse Buhari Of Tyranny Over Suspension Of Onnoghen

A storm of reactions by Nigerians has greeted President Muhammadu Buhari‘s gaffe during the presidential rally in Warri, Delta state, where 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”.
