I did not slip, It was ‘Idobale’ for democracy, Tinubu



‘Idobale’ for democracy

President Bola Tinubu has described as ‘Idobale’ for democracy”, his near fall in the course of the democracy Day activities earlier today.

The president was reacting to the trending video and accompanying comments that followed his attempt to board the presidential vehicle at Eagles Square Abuja.

Idobale for democracy” as Tinubu has described it, is indeed adding another jocular dimension to the issue.


In a joking manner, he said it was a swagger and  that as a traditional Yoruba boy, he was performing a customary greeting called “dobale” to mark Democracy Day.
