Nigeria’s Youth Development and Sports minister, Solomon Dalung had though few hours online today as he battled with a gaffe (or typo?) on a Facebook post where he wrote that he visited Gongola State on Wednesday, April 6, 2016.

After Nigerians began making fun of the reference to a non-existent state in Nigeria, he edited the post and changed ‘state’ to ‘community’.

President Muhammadu Buhari early in his administration in 2015, had embarrassed Nigerians by referred to the chancellor of Germany, Angela Merkel, as “President Michelle” of “West Germany”.  West Germany does exist anymore, pretty much like Gongola State which was created in 1976 and ceased to exist in August 1991 when Taraba and Adamawa States were created from it.
