President Bola Tinubu has responded to the viral video of him slipping while boarding the presidential vehicle at Eagles Square in Abuja.

Tinubu jokingly referred to the fall as a “swagger” and explained that as a traditional Yoruba boy, he was performing a customary greeting called “dobale” to mark Democracy Day.

Tinubu made this known during the state Banquet Dinner at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, to mark this year’s Democracy Day.

With a dash of humour, Tinubu said,

“Early this morning, I had a swagger and it’s on the social media. They were confused about whether I was doing Buga or doing babariga, But, It is a day to celebrate democracy while doing “Idobale” for the day.

“I am a traditionally Yoruba boy and I did my ‘Idobale’”

 It was reported that Tinubu approached the vehicle shortly after he arrived at the venue of the 2024 Democracy Day, but lost his footing momentarily as he was about to step into the vehicle.

However, despite the slip, the President regained his balance and continued with the proceedings.
