The All Progressives Congress presidential campaign council has said that the gaffes and blunders by its candidate, Bola Tinubu, are minor issues and should not be amplified.
The APC council noted that it showed “the lack of seriousness” for some Nigerians to pick on the blunders and make them topical issues.
In a trending video, the former Lagos governor was not able to correct himself as he proceeded to mention “APC” instead of PVC.
“Do you love me? Do you love me? Go and take your APV…APC and you must vote,” Tinubu said.
Reacting, Onanuga said, “What people call a gaffe here is incorrect. What’s the big deal in having someone who wanted to call APC or PDP but ended up calling something else?
These are minor slips and Tinubu even corrected himself on each occasion. Even younger politicians like the PDP campaign spokesperson, Daniel Bwala, did that much. There was a video of him where he was talking about the APC when he wanted to say the PDP. Dino Melaye also did the same when he urged the people of Borno to vote for the APC.
And he didn’t even say it once. He repeated it several times.
