Following his decision not to attend some town hall meetings, Tinubu suffered a gaffe as he tried to dismiss the events.
Speaking at a political gathering in Imo state, Tinubu attempted to justify his refusal to attend town hall debates, saying something like:
“A town hall, different from balablu blu blu bulaba.”

Nevertheless, the "balablu blu blu bulaba” trended on social media as opponents of the APC presidential candidate used it to mock him.
