"I am not too confident about my memory" - President admits

President Muhammadu Buhari has acknowledged that he is not confident about his memory.

He said this on Wednesday, July 22, at the National Democratic Institute in Washington DC, the United states while answering questions from members of Civil Society.

“I am not too confident about my memory. Let me answer one question at a time,” Buhari said.

The President's age has been a topic of debate prior to his emergence as the Nigerian leader and after he assumed office, following repeated unintentional remark causing embarrassment to the country.

Many are saying the 72-year-old is not fit to lead Nigeria.

On Tuesday, July 21, Buhari had mistaken the name of his political party, the All Progressives congress APC, for the "All Nigeria People’s Congress”

Pulse recalls that the President had also referred to the German Chancellor, Angela Merkel as the President of West African Germany - the recurring errors which has fuelled fresh concerns amongst Nigerians as to whether Buhari will be able to deliver on his campaign promises.
