Dino Melaye Makes Fun of Tinubu Over Remark That Students Will Attend School for Eight Years
Dino Melaye, a former senator from Kogi and a prominent member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has reacted to Bola Tinubu, the APC presidential candidate, making yet another mistake.
Melaye called the incident a “eyah issue” when sharing the footage of Tinubu’s mistake on Twitter.
Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress (APCpresidential )’s candidate, was in Osun State on Thursday for his campaign, according to The Site News.
Tinubu, while addressing supporters of the APC at the APC presidential campaign rally spoke on his plan for education.
The former Governor of Lagos State, who spoke in the Yoruba Language in a video spotted online, said Nigerians who have not gained admission and the ones who have gained admission can call him a bastard if they stay in their institutions for more than eight years.
The general years for most courses in higher institutions is four years, while courses like Engineering, Agriculture, and some others spend five years in school and Medicine takes six years.
The APC presidential candidate probably had a plan of saying four years and not eight years.
Speaking during his presidential campaign, Tinubu said, “For those that have not gained admission and the ones that are in school, you can call me a bastard if you spend more than eight years in school, you would use eight years to study.”
Reacting to the video which has gone viral on the internet and social media platforms, Melaye wrote: “My God!! My God. 8 Years bawoni? Even medicine is 6 years. It is an eyah situation.”
