Trending video: Moment Tinubu slipped and fell while boarding Presidential Parade Vehicle

A video making the rounds on social media captures the scary moment Nigeria’s president Bola Ahmed Tinubu missed his step at the Eagles square.

The president arrived at the Eagles Square, in the Federal Capital Territory around 10 am on Wednesday, for the Democracy Day celebration parade.

As Tinubu was about to mount the Presidential Parade Vehicle after alighting from his motorcade, he lost his balance, slipped and fell while climbing the stairs onto the platform.

Men of the Guards Brigade immediately rushed to his side to help him stand. He was accompanied to the venue of the event by his wife, Oluremi Tinubu.

The national anthem was eventually recited after the president’s arrival to signal the commencement of the program.

Present at the Democracy Day ceremony include Chief of Defence Staff, General Christopher Musa, Vice President of the country, Kashim Shettima, and the Senate president, Godswill Akpabio.
