Video: ‘No Issues’, Presidency Reacts To Tinubu Falls During Democracy Day Event In Abuja

The Nigerian presidency has reacted to the troubling scene which showed the moment President Bola Tinubu missed his step and fell during Democracy Day celebration in Abuja on Wednesday.

A video which has gone viral on social media showed that Mr Tinubu missed his step and fell while walking into a military vehicle that would convey him for a parade at Eagle Square, the venue of the event.

The President, who wore a white native attire and his signature cap, struggled to save himself by holding on to the vehicle, but landed on the ground while his aides immediately rushed to support him back to his feet.

While reacting to the unfortunate development, Dada Olusegun, a special assistant to the president on social media, said, “Mr President missed his step while climbing into the truck at the June 12 Democracy Day celebration and tripped. It was a mild misstep. He immediately went on with the ceremonial rounds. No issues.”
