Recall that the President had earlier said he was sworn into office on the 19th of May, 2015 while campaigning in Kogi state.
Also, the president goofed in Calabar when he raised the hand of the wrong person as gubernatorial candidate of the party in Cross River state.
Instead of raising the hand of the APC gubernatorial candidate, Senator John Owan-Enoh, Buhari raised the hand of acting Chairman of APC in the state, Sir John Ochala.
While on 17th January at the Presidential campaign rally at Warri, Delta State, he said: “I am handing over this flag of honour to our presidential candidate”. When the man to his left corrected him, saying “gubernatorial”, Buhari responded with “to our senatorial candidate” Again, the man corrected him, saying “gubernatorial”. This time, Buhari said: “governortorial candidate”.
Also, on Thursday, January 24th the president made another gaffe during the presidential campaign rally in Onitsha, Anambra state when he referred to “South-Eastern States” as “East Central State”.
