Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo on Monday, October 1st 2018 took a jibe at the Senator Representing Kogi West senatorial districts and PDP’s osun governorship Candidate, Ademola Adeleke.
This occurred at the dinner and gala night held at the presidential villa as part of activities marking the nation’s 58th independence anniversary.
While giving his remark, he disclosed that aside being one of the happiest and optimistic people, we are also one of the most humorous people.
He talked about Senator Melaye’s Court case Drama that occurred few months ago when he tried to resist arrest and being arraigned in court.
The VP didn’t stop there but also talked about Senator Adeleke attributing good governance to his ability to dance.
Although the Vice President didn’t Mentions Names as he used the word “politician’ it was very easy to tell exactly who he was referring to.
In his words: “A few years ago, a poll reported in the British Independent Newspaper declared us the happiest people on earth. The same poll said that we were also amongst the most optimistic people on earth, despite everything that we’ve experienced as a nation.
“I agree with both assessments, in other words, that we are possibly one of the happiest in the world, but I must also add that we are, by far, the most humorous people on the face of the earth.
“Well, if you don’t agree with me, but I can tell you so many reasons why we are the most humorous. A few months ago, an important Nigerian politician who was on his way to a trial in a court said he was abducted and after he escaped from his abductors, he remained hiding on a tree for 11 hours.
“The most interesting part of that story is that many people online in particular, on the Internet, started to tell stories of different birds and how long those birds could remain perched on a tree. All these were the Nigerian contributions to that story.
“Yet another very important politician insisted, and still insists that the most important attribute for leadership is dancing, and boy he can dance! And for those who think that that is ridiculous, at least 200,000 people voted for him in a particular election.”
Osinbajo also cited an example of his former driver who explained that he kept making more babies in order to brighten his chances of becoming a father to Nigerian president since he did not know which of his children would end up becoming the President.
“When I served as an adviser to the Attorney-General of the Federation between 1987 and 1992, I had a driver who was always broke. But he was always so optimistic.”
