Buhari Calls Great Ogboru APC presidential candidate 

Buhari referred to APC Delta Gubernatorial Candidate, Great Ogboru, as APC presidential candidate, then senatorial candidate before finally getting it right.

Buhari was to hand over APC flag to the Delta State governorship candidate of the party.

However, he said: "I am handing over this flag of honour to our presidential candidate." When the man to his left corrected him, saying "gubernatorial", Buhari responded with "to our senatorial candidate". Again, the man corrected him, saying "gubernatorial". This time, Buhari said: "governortorial candidate".
