President Muhammadu Buhari who is presently attending the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) convening at New York City in the United States of America has goofed yet again.
The UNGA Moderator asked President Buhari to highlight a pathway depicting Nigeria’s resilient future while taking into consideration, the country’s young population.
Instead of answering the question, Buhari began to read a long-prepared speech on Climate change.
The footage which was shared by Bashir Ahmad and Tolu Ogunlesi, has since been deleted due to the backlash from Nigerian Twitter users.
