In his attempt to shower encomium on Kaduna state governor Nasir El-Rufai, Bola Tinubu, 2023 presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC),has committed another public gaffe.
Addressing attendees of the Kaduna Investment Summit which was held at the Umaru Musa Yar’Adua conference hall in Kaduna on Saturday, Tinubu said El-Rufai’s “creativity and resiliency in turning a rotten situation into a bad one,”.
The blunder has again raised questions about Tinubu’s mental capacity to hold the nation’s highest office.
Appealing to El-Rufai not to leave the country, Tinubu said the nation was in dire need of creative thinkers like the Kaduna governor.
“Nigeria needs thinkers and doers. I’m openly begging Nasir El-Rufai not to run away for additional degree. There are lots of educated relics. We are not going to let you run away,” asserted Tinubu while mounting the podium on Saturday.
“Your vision, creativity and resiliency in turning a rotten situation into a bad one is necessary at this critical time,” added the APC presidential flag bearer.
Tinubu, unaware of the perennial slip-up, did not make any effort to correct himself. The gaffe would be the latest addition to his slurred and incoherent comments at public functions.
The incident has again renewed worries about both Mr Tinubu’s mental and physical ability to handle the rigours of presidency should he win the presidential elections in 2023.
