The All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, delivered another gaffe on Saturday when he referred to the Permanent Voter Card (PVC) used to vote as “APV”.

Tinubu who was speaking at the grand rally in Lagos state added to his collection of slur and errors as questions to continue about his mental and physical fitness.

The former two-term Lagos governor while speaking at the rally made the mistake of saying APV instead of PVC and an attempt to correct himself made the matters worse as he he referred to PVC as APC, the acronym of his party.

Addressing the youths, he said, “Greatest Nigerian youths… Are you great? God bless you. Go and take your PVC and you vote APC. Do you love me? Go and take your APV, APC and you must vote. You must go that morning,” he said.


This is the second time in one week that the APC presidential candidate appears to gaffe when he made reference to corn during his speech on electricity.

In Ebonyi state while speaking on the power situation in Nigeria and how the opposition PDP failed to do anything in 16 years, he said, “They spent more than $16 billion, they forget that transmission line is a super highway for generated electricity, power. They could not even make a down payment for a roasted corn.”

Last week in Owerri, capital of Imo state during a town hall meeting with private sector he made his most profound gaffe. Tinubu said, “A town hall different from balablu, blulu bulaba.”

But it was at the kick off of his presidential campaign in Plateau state that the gaffe began. Tinubu had mistakenly said “God bless PD… APC.”

During his speech in Lagos, Tinubu, who is also referred to as the national leader of APC described  the PDP candidate and former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar as “selfish”.

“Atiku contested in SDP. He contested in PDP. He contested in ACN when we rescued him from Obasanjo. Now he is contesting again in PDP. He should go home and rest,” he said.


“Atiku has been running. Use your PVC to vote him and his party out. Use your votes to retire him permanently this time. We must never again allow the rapacious and visionless gang of Peoples Destroying People to come near our commonwealth again.

“They were in government for 16 years, they didn’t remember Badagry expressway, they didn’t remember east-west road, they didn’t remember the second Niger bridge.

“I specially thank President Muhammadu Buhari for the unprecedented federal support and commitment to Lagos state.

“We have come a long way from presidents whose sole obsession was to capture or conquer Lagos in do-or-die fashion, to a president who loves the state greatly and is keen to see it do very well.”
