Nigerians on social media have been reacting to a video that shows President Muhammadu Buhari raising the wrong hands as he endorsed the flagbearers of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

In the video that has now gone viral, the president was spotted raising the hands of Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the party but raised the hands of someone other than the vice presidential candidate, Kassim Shettima.

While the identity of the man couldn't be ascertained at the time of filing this report, the video suggests he is a chieftain of the ruling party.

Meanwhile, the presidential campaign rally of the All Progressives Congress in Bauchi State ended abruptly over a faulty sound system.

The rally which was ongoing at the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa Stadium, Bauchi, on Monday, ended abruptly when the light went off and could not be restored.

The light went off shortly after the National Chairman of the APC, Abdullahi Adamu, mounted the podium and began delivering his speech.

The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), who was present at the rally, had to leave immediately with his entourage.

Buhari had arrived Bauchi to lead the All Progressives Congress’ presidential and governorship campaign rally.

The aircraft conveying the President touched down at the Sir Abubakar Tafawa Balewa airport, Bauchi around 10:20 am.
