The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, suffered another gaffe during his campaign in Kogi State at the weekend.
Atiku, his running mate, Sen Ifeanyi Okowa and other PDP chieftains, had stormed the Confluence Stadium in Lokoja, Kogi State, to woo the people and canvass for their support for the February 25 presidential election.
The rally was the first campaign Atiku will hold since returning to Nigeria after spending two weeks outside the country. The former vice president returned to Nigeria on Friday, January 13..
However, while addressing party faithful and supporters who thronged the stadium, Atiku mistakenly said Nigerians should vote for the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), but he quickly corrected himself.
This is the second time in barely a month that the presidential candidate will suffer a gaffe.
Atiku had at a rally in Jos, Plateau State, on December 14, 2022, said: “For God’s sake and for the value of this place, ensure that you vote for A… I mean PDP this time around.”
