Please permit me to say that one of the funniest and most deceptive groups of politicians are found in Nigerian. They’ll never stop amazing the general public all the days of their lives with actions that look more like a comedy than reality. This can be traced to how lucrative and mouth-watering politics is in Nigeria. No incumbent ever wants to trade his position for anything, whatever it is. They can do anything to get into power and they can do almost anything to stay in power, even if it means hawking fufu in the open market or treading through a flood of dirty water, they’re ever ready because the cash and power is worth it.
On the other hand, if those who are already in power will do anything to stay there, those still aspiring for a post will go extra miles and will do much more to make sure they’re elected into power. Looking away from the more heinous acts of terrorizing and killing oppositions, we look to the more fun side of the issue. You’ll actually confirm what I’m saying with the photos provided below of the very funny and lowly things Nigerian politicians can do to remain in power.
Former deputy governor of Osun state, Iyiola Omisore was pictured eating roasted corn publicly, buying and eating pop corn in the open market, riding on a motorcycle few weeks to the Governorship election in Osun state. Makes you wonder what exactly he was trying to achieve but more importantly, did he?
Controversial Governor Okorocha was seen roasting corn while carrying a baby and at another time, buying roasted corn from common street sellers like any normal person would do. I’m sure his reasons are definitely more political than humane.
Former Governor of Anambra state, Peter Obi was pictured standing in a flood up to his thighs when he visited victims of the Ogbaru flood in Anambra state, to inspect the level of damage done in the area. Some may say he is just doing his job but if you ask me, there is certainly more to it than doing his job since the victims don’t sleep in the water like fishes do.
Who says politicians are not fun people? Former Lagos state Governor, Fashola and former Anambra state governor Peter Obi were caught on camera dancing on stage and it looks like they know just how to shake it.
Kano State Governor Rabiu Kwankwaso, his deputy, commissioners and APC party chairman sweeping the Polo park after President Goodluck Jonathan left the ground where PDP party members held a meeting in Kano…LoL! They took the party difference thing a bit too far don’t you think?
