‘Falling since 1992’ — Tinubu’s aide taunts Atiku over comments on president’s fall

Olusegun Dada, special assistant to the president on social media, has mocked former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar over his comments on President Tinubu’s slip.

On Democracy Day, Tinubu missed his steps and fell while climbing the parade vehicle at Eagle Square in Abuja.

The president momentarily lost his footing but quickly regained his balance with support from his aide-de-camp (ADC).

Reacting in a post on X, Atiku described the incident as “unfortunate” and sympathised with the president, saying, “I do hope that all is well with him”.


But in his reaction, Dada wrote a sarcastic message in response to the former vice-president’s comments, saying the president’s “brief fall” is better than Atiku Abubakar’s loss at the presidential polls.

“Better to fall briefly and rise than to be falling consistently in trying to be president since 1992 but still won’t quit,” he wrote on X.

Abubakar has aspired to become Nigerian president six times but has been on the ballot as a presidential candidate on three occasions: in 2007, 2019, and 2023.
