Yesterday, President Buhari committed a gaffe when he addressed his citizen with issues pertaining to the Coronavirus pandemic.
Instead of Covid-19, Buhari said Covik One Nine and the internet have since come for his head.
Some cannot fathom why and how a president could make this mistake whilst his media team watched unconcerned as he continually made a mess of himself during his speech.
Actress Uche Jombo took to her Twitter page to slam Buhari’s media team for allowing repeatedly to get the name wrong. According to her, his whole media team must be sacked because they are not competent and efficient enough to serve the president.
Well, controversial actor Uche Maduagwu is adding his voice to it. According to Uche, Jombo should rather concentrate on the president’s message and leave the pronunciation to be.
Following the gaffe, comments that came up is that President Buhari did not really make a mistake with the word. According to some, that is just his accent.

@uchejombo focus on the message, not the wording, the only thing worth replacing urgently is Coronavirus… 🙄🙄Whether President #Buhari calls it covik one nine or not, that is irrelevant, ✏️i dont think this is the proper time for all this, its laughable when i hear people allegedly calling for replacement of the President social media team for not correcting him over his alleged covik one nine usage in a #video, 🙄#hello, anyone who is familiar with concise military verbiage will tell you that based on the president military background, even if he was told of #covid19 pronunciation, he is most likely going to do it same way based on the military verbiage he has been used to, 🤷♂️but the most important thing right now is the message, lets concentrate all this energy we are allegedly focusing on his wording into spreading the message, 🤷♀️other celebrities in #UK and #America are donating and giving their government all the needed support to making sure Covid19 is replaced with wellness, is this what we should be doing over here as celebs? 🙄Why cant we as celebs convert this unnecessary observation of Buhari covik one nine into donating money to #NCDC and other #WHO recognized NGO working tirelessly with #Lagos State government and other states to fighting #Coronavirus pandemic?🤷♀️#repost #share #instagram #actress #nollywood #abuja #followme #blog #instagood #nigeria #ghana #pics
