The national leader of the APC and former governor of Lagos State, Bola Ahmed Tinubu has again suffers another fresh gaffe by embarrassing the wife of Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo.
He made the gaffe in Abuja while speaking on Thursday at the launch of Aisha Buhari’s biography titled, ‘Aisha Buhari: Being different’.
Among other invited guests, Tinubu was the chairman of the event which held at the Banquet Hall, presidential villa, Abuja.
In a video obtained by DAILY GIST, The APC National leader erroneously described Dolapo Osinbajo, wife of the vice-president, as the “wife of the president”.
While acknowledging dignitaries in the audience, Tinubu said: “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.”
After the gaffe, Tinubu paused for a couple of seconds before continuing his remarks
DAILY GIST recalls that this is the second of such slips from the former Lagos governor in the past two weeks.
Tinubu on March 29 had said 50 million youths should be drafted into the army to tackle the nation’s growing insecurity.
But less than 24 hours later, Tinubu released a statement acknowledging his error, noting that he meant 50,000 and not 50 million youths.
