Presidency Apologises For Tinubu’s ‘First African President To Ring NASDAQ Closing Bell’ Error

The Presidency has issued an official apology following the recent NASDAQ bell-ringing ceremony, where President Bola Tinubu was initially hailed as the first African leader to participate in this prestigious tradition.

It has been revealed that a former African leader had previously rung the bell at NASDAQ, debunking the initial claim of Tinubu’s historic achievement.

DIPLOMATIC DIARY reports that Jakaya Kiwete, former President of Tanzania, rang the NASDAQ closing bell in 2011.

According to a terse statement by the State House Media and Publicity Unit on Friday, the error was regretted.

The statement reads: “we inadvertently referred to President Bola Tinubu as the first African leader to ring the bell at NASDAQ on Wednesday in New York, based on the information provided by a third-party event organiser.

“We have since found out that this information was/is incorrect as a former African leader has indeed had the privilege.

“This error is sincerely regretted.”
