President Muhammadu Buhari has come under attack for saying he assumed office in 2005.
Buhari, while addressing his supporters in Ekiti State on Tuesday, told them that his government was cautious of the promises they made when they came on board in 2005.
Buhari was, however, sworn in on May 29, 2015 after defeating Goodluck Jonathan of the Peoples Democratic Party at the poll.
The gaffe, which was captured in a viral video, has since stirred reactions online, owing to the fact that it is not the first time he would be making mistakes on stage.
Some Nigerians on social media have, therefore, called on Buhari to stop campaigning and retire.
Recall that Buhari had during his campaign at Cross River State presented Ndoma Egba as ‘governorship candidate’ instead of Owan Enoh.
Here are some comments gathered by DAILY POST from Twitter:
@Gbemiro “It’s sad people still don’t know this man is suffering from possible dementia/ Alzheimer’s disease.”
@chuksvicigona “This is proof my dear president need to rest.”
@Austinojie “Buhari is obviously not aware of anything around him.it is easy to make him sign a document authorizing the release of billions of dollars without knowing what he has signed.
He truly needs to rest.”
@Lboogie_k “General slip of tongue. A Lagos radio OAP just said on his program this evening that the upcoming Election on “March 16th, 2019” instead of February. Does this also mean he has a memory loss or dementia?
@Chumychuks “Honestly speaking, buhari is just the fall guy. He’s been propped up by Abba Kyari and his gang. Their mission is simple, win the election by hook or crook. Drop buhari by the side and rule Nigeria by proxy.”
@Donvik82 “This man is just not fit to rule a nation, he got dementia and must go on a retirement.”
@Samuelnosike “This is becoming very disturbing, I sincerely hope this is not a case of dementia because it is absolutely no longer a slip as festus keyamo would want Nigerians to believe.”
@Codshalom77 “What more evidence do you need to know that Buhari is suffering from Acute Dementia which is showing at every point in his interactions.”
@MBuhari should be allowed to go and rest in Daura.People pushing him on are EVIL!
@Hunree “And APC blames PDP for the past 16 years when they have been in charge since 2005.”
@Bankoleedward “Still wonder why some people are still supporting this man, wake up Nigerian we need better and sound leader.”
@Davethorty “My God Chineke mere nmadu ebere,I can’t take this gaffers anymore, not my President, Insha Allah back to Daura where he can peacefully watch over his 150 cows.”
@Lathyph “He doesn’t even know when Nigerians voted for him anymore. Lets vote them out come 16th of February.”
