Uche Jombo knocks Buhari’s media team over COVID-19 mispronunciation

Nollywood actress, Uche Jombo Rodriguez, has called for the removal of President Muhammadu Buhari’s social media team over the mispronunciation of COVID-19 in a video posted on Twitter on Sunday by his Special Assistant on New Media, Bashir Ahmad.

The 40-year-old made the call on Twitter on Sunday, noting that even the Ghanaians are finding it funny.

“The whole of President Buhari’s social media team needs to be replaced over covik one nine video for not correcting him, watched it and shared it. Now even Ghana people on my TL are having fun with it. I hope the ‘Baba must speak to us’ WhatsApp group people are happy,” she tweeted.

Buhari wrongly pronounced COVID-19 as ‘Covik one nine’ in the now-deleted video which was purported to be his first press conference on the coronavirus outbreak.
