President Muhammadu Buhari has come under severe criticisms after he presented his aide as the gubernatorial candid of Cross River state instead of the actual candidate.
This mistake which many Nigerians have labeled as ’embarrassing’ took place on Wednesday in Cross River state where the president had gone for his presidential campaign rally.
In this video, which has been shared by thousands of people on Twitter, including former presidential aide, Reno Omokri, the presented his aide, Ndoma Egba, as Cross River State’s APC “governatorial” candidate instead of Owan Enoh.
Analysing the video, Omokri mocked Buhari for not only raising the hand of the wrong candidate but for also calling the man a GOVERNATORIAL candidate.
This man should be in a RETIREMENT home not at AsoRock. The CABAL is in charge, not Buhari, he said.
MUST WATCH: President @MBuhari raises up the hand of the wrong gubernatorial candidate. Not only that, he still calls the man a GOVERNATORIAL candidate. This man should be in a RETIREMENT home not at @AsoRock. The CABAL is in charge, not Buhari. WATCH, COMMENT and RETWEET pic.twitter.com/2lzfnnw4QE

National Broadcast: PDP Slams Buhari Over ‘Disappointing, Empty’ Speech – PDP
Recall that Buhari in his speech called for an end to the protest, adding that his government had already accepted and started implementing demands of the protesters.
He, however, failed to acknowledge the shooting of protesters by soldiers of the Nigerian Army at the Lekki Toll Gate on Tuesday night.
Reacting in a statement on Thursday night by its spokesperson, Kola Ologbodinyan, the PDP said Buhari’s address was depressing and failed empathy test.
The party appealed to Nigerians, particularly the youth, to remain calm and allow a return to normal life in the collective quest for peaceful co-existence in the overall interest of the nation.

This was contained in a statement titled “EndSARS- Lekki Massacre,” signed by the PDP National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, late on Tuesday.
Ologbodiyan said, “The Peoples Democratic Party, condemns in very strong terms, the killing of peaceful protesters at the Lekki Toll Gate in Lagos as well as other parts of our country.
“It is shocking that security agents and, in some cases, thugs, were reportedly deployed to end the lives of promising Nigerians. This, to say the least, is saddening.
“Those responsible for the heinous murder of the innocent and harmless Nigerians must account for their nefarious acts.
“The PDP calls on President Muhammadu Buhari to immediately direct an end to these wanton killings across our nation.
