Bola Tinubu, national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has yet again made another public blunder during his speech at the book presentation of the first lady, Aisha Buhari.
The national political icon raised some eyebrows when he mistakenly addressed wife of Vice-president Dolapo Osinbajo, as the “wife of the president”.
This happened while he was speaking on Thursday in Abuja at the launch of Aisha Buhari’s biography titled, ‘Aisha Buhari: Being different’.
Bola Tinubu who chaired the occasion held at Banquet Hall, presidential villa, Abuja may have drawn the attention of Nigerians by making another erroneous statement after he had gone viral on social media for admonishing the Nigerian government to recruit “50 million” youths into the Nigerian army and feed them with “cassava and yam”
Tunubu while acknowledging dignitaries at the event had erroneously addressed the wife of the vice president, Dolapo Osinbajo as the wife of the president:
Your excellency President Muhammadu Buhari, ably represented by the chief of staff; his excellency the vice president, Yemi Osinbajo; her excellency first lady, Aisha Muhammadu Buhari; your excellency wife of the president, Dolapo Osinbajo.
This was contained in a video posted on twitter by the cable:

This is coming after Tinubu came under heavy criticism for saying 50 million youths should be recruited into the Nigerian army to avoid a forceful conscription into banditry while speaking at his 69th birthday colloquium on March, 29, 2021.
However, the political made a clarification that he meant 50 thousand and not 50 million youths via press a statement on March, 30, 2021
Meanwhile, some Nigerians have reacted to the video, saying the former governor appears to have dimentia, while some believe it was was simply an honest mistake.
so many twitter users have taken to social media to share their opinions.
here are some comments on twitter:

Dude is suffering memory loss at 69 lol, 69 must be the new 80 years old. Time always have a way of revealing the truth. Unbelievable that some folks in their 20s & 30s think this man holds the key to unlocking Nigeria’s greatness, when in truth, some of them could do better..
