President Muhammadu Buhari slipped and almost fell during the All Progressive Congress (APC) presidential campaign rally in Kogi State on Wednesday 16th January, 2019.
According to reports, the incident happened shortly after the campaign, President Buhari was making his way out of the podium when he slipped and almost fell. He was immediately assisted by people around him at the time.
In reaction, the Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP), claimed that the purported collapse of President Buhari, during the APC campaign rally in Lokoja, the Kogi state capital, vindicates their stand that “he is physically unfit to continue in office”.
According to Daily Post, in a statement signed by CUPP’s spokesperson, Ikenga Imo Ugochinyere on Wednesday, January 16, 2019, the Opposition Coalition called on Nigerians to “reject Buhari when they still have the power to avoid painful regret”. They added:
“Desperate APC/Presidency cabal wants Buhari back despite his lack of capacity to rule for selfish monetary and political reason”.
Ugochinyere also warned Channels TV not to “destroy the full video record of the rally where Buhari collapsed”.
