Buhari’s spokesperson goofed by referring to Buhari as President Jonathan

Senior Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu goofed when he mistakenly referred to President Muhammadu Buhari as President Jonathan in a statement he released to the media on Wednesday.

Shehu was narrating what transpired between Buhari and members of Nigerians In Diaspora Organization (NIDO) in the United States and Canada during their meeting at the Nigerian Embassy in Washington DC on the third day of his visit on Tuesday

Shehu mistakenly called President Buhari, President Jonathan when Buhari was asked if the Federal Government (FG) would agree to negotiate with the Boko Haram insurgent and terrorist organization to pave way for the release of the abducted Chibok schoolgirls.

Shehu said:

“President Jonathan when asked if the Federal Government (FG) would agree to negotiate with the Boko Haram insurgent and terrorist organization to pave way for the release of the abducted Chibok schoolgirls, replied that the FG would only negotiate if genuine and confirmed leaders of the militant sect came forward and convinced the FG of the current conditions of the girls, their location and the sect’s willingness to negotiate. “Our objective is that we want the girls back, alive and returned to their families and rehabilitated. We are working with neighboring countries if they will help,”
