Tinubu’s slip: ‘It’s no big deal, Nigerians react


Nigerians have reacted to the video showing the moment President Bola Tinubu slipped while boarding the presidential parade vehicle at Eagles Square in Abuja on Wednesday.

The President slipped while climbing the parade truck at the venue of the 2024 Democracy Day celebration.

Despite the slip, the President quickly regained his balance and continued with the proceedings.

While people like the former Vice President Atiku Abubakar and a former senate president, Bukola Saraki  sympathised with the President for what they called “an unfortunate incident,” on their X handles, many Nigerians have downplayed the incident, saying it is not a big deal.
