Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo made a mockery of PDP’s governorship candidate in the recently concluded Osun state gubernatorial election, Senator Ademola Adeleke, and fellow party member, Senator Dino Malaye, during his speech at the Independence Gala night held at the Banquet hall of the Presidential Villa.
Osibanjo said he agreed with the poll reportedly conducted by the British Independent newspapers which declared Nigerians as the happiest and most optimistic people in the world.
He went on to mock Senator Adeleke stating that he provided humour with his dance moves while Senator Melaye made Nigerians laugh by claiming he had escaped assassination by hiding on a tree top for 11 hours.
“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 insists, and still insists that the most important attribute for leadership is dancing, and boy could he dance! And for those who think that that is ridiculous, at least 200,000 people voted for him in a particular election.”
