The national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, made an unintentional error when he described Dolapo Osinbajo, wife of vice-president Yemi Osinbajo, as the “wife of the president”.
He made the gaffe while speaking on Thursday in Abuja at the launch of Aisha Buhari’s biography titled, ‘Aisha Buhari: Being different’.
The APC chieftain was the chairman of the event which held at the Banquet Hall, presidential villa, Abuja.
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 resuming his remarks.
