President Mohammadu Buhari while at the G-7 event in Germany referred to
the German Chancellor, Angela Merkel as Michelle and President of West
Germany in a video posted on YouTube by reportaafrique.tv.
This is not the first time President Buhari would be making major gaffe on
television. He had during the campaign while granting an interview withan
international media organization referred the All Progressive Congress,
APC, as All Progressive Confidence. He had equally called his then running
mate, Professor Yemi Osibande instead of Yemi Osibanjo.
Buhari had also referred the Independent National Electoral Commission,
INEC, as Independent Nigeria Electoral Commission.
The recent blunder in Germany has caused outraged in what analyst
described as a major “international embarrassment.”
