President Muhammadu Buhari, on Thursday, faced one of the greatest embarrassments of his life, as power outage occurred immediately he was called upon to deliver his keynote address.
This happened at the commissioning of Abuja Mass Rail Transit, ARMT, in the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, on Thursday.
The Minister of the FCT, Mohammed Bello, and the China Ambassador, Zhou Pingjian, had just ended their speeches, which went on smoothly.
However, immediately the President was invited to the podium for his address, the power outage occurred, throwing the temporary tent venue of the occasion into huge murmuring.
Some of the guests suggested that there may have been an attempt to sabotage the event.
Apparently unperturbed, the President went ahead to read his speech, using a battery powered public address system.
The light was restored after about five minutes, just before the President ended his speech.
