It Was Slip Of Tongue – Tinubu Defends Kaduna Gaffe

The All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate Bola Tinubu has explained that part of his comments during a speech in Kaduna State was a slip of tongue.

Tinubu was speaking at the Kaduna State Investment Summit held on Saturday at the state capital.

The politcian, while making his remarks at the event said Kaduna State governor Nasir el-Rufai “has turned a rotten situation into a bad one”. This got Tinubu some flacks on social media.

But responding, the Director of Media and Publicity of the Presidential Campaign Council Bayo Onanuga said the gaffe was a slip of tongue.

“Earlier today at the Kaduna State Investment Summit, All Progressives Congress Presidential Candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu while commending, Governor Nasir El-Rufai for his transformational leadership in the state had a slip of tongue that is common to every human being and even great leaders,” Onanuga said.

“The APC leader inadvertently said Governor El-Rufai “turned a rotten situation” he met on ground in Kaduna into ‘a bad one’ whereas he meant to say ‘to a great one.’

“It was a mere slip, that is not unusual in life, even among leaders of nations.

“We recognise we are in political season where everything is latched on for deliberate distortion and twisted mischief.

“While mischief makers went so low, we noted that the audience at KadInvest 7.0 followed Asiwaju Tinubu with rapt attention and knew he only had a slip.

“We can only tell mischief makers to look for better and productive things to do with their time.”
