The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu,has said he had a freudian slip when he said he wanted the Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-rufai, to help him transform a rotten situation.
Tinubu made the comment at an investment forum in Kaduna on Saturday.
His clarification was contained in a statement signed by media director, Bayo Onanuga.
It read, “Earlier today at the Kaduna State Investment Summit, All Progressives Congress Presidential Candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu while commending, Governor Nasir El-Rufai for his transformational leadership in the state had a slip of tongue that is common to every human being and even great leaders.
The APC leader inadvertently said Governor El-Rufai “turned a rotten situation” he met on ground in Kaduna into “a bad one” whereas he meant to say “to a great one to be proud of today”.
“It was a mere Freudian slip, that is not unusual in life, even among leaders of nations.
“We recognise we are in political season where everything is latched on for deliberate distortion and twisted mischief.
“While mischief makers went so low, we noted that the audience at KadInvest 7.0 followed Asiwaju Tinubu with rapt attention and knew he only had a slip.
“We can only tell mischief makers to look for better and productive things to do with their time.”
