Who are the most comical Nigerian politicians?

Published

on

Nigerian politicians from time immemorial have had very funny antics. Even though politics in Nigeria can be heart-wrenching, humour can sometimes be the last resort amid Nigeria’s political crisis.

,

Honestly, some of these politicians can be very funny even without knowing. These are our top five:

1. Dino Melaye

When he was still a senator of Kogi West Local Government, Dino used to make many videos, sometimes he would sing Yoruba songs like “Ajegun Iya”.

Let’s not forget how in 2019, he jumped out of a police van to avoid going to jail and how he had to be wheeled into the Magistrate court, Lokoja.

When the Police went to his home to arrest him, he fainted and had to be carried and dragged out of the house. All that theatrics was not for nothing as Dino got in a Nollywood film in 2019 and has since starred in four movies.

Nowadays, Dino makes fewer videos, but when we see him, he pairs designer outfits in the most ridiculous ways and shows off his numerous cars.

2. Ayo Fayose

Who can forget the former Ekiti Governor’s Ayo Fayose press conference in 2018 after he had been arrested?

He was wearing a cast on his neck and he cried out saying, “I am in pain, I am in severe pains. If anything happens to me, blame the Inspector General of Police!”

Fayose is also known for many rants, many of them funny. It’s amazing how Nigerian politicians always fall sick when they are to be accountable for their actions.

3. Nyesom Wike

The Governor of Rivers State hands down is a very funny man. During his 2023 presidential campaign, he trended for saying, ‘Just give me the power!’

An interview or press conference where Wike didn’t say anything funny? Nah, it doesn’t exist. Watching him sometimes feels like watching a skit.

4. Yahaya Bello

The Governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello doesn’t try to be a comical man, he just is, whether he is lifting weights or making a video of himself.

He once made a video saying those accusing him of having coronavirus have HIV. He even denied that Corona virus existed in his state.

Perhaps the funniest thing he has done is an attempt to be the president of Nigeria through the PDP primaries, especially when he said Nigerians are begging him to run. Which Nigerians?

5. Ademola Adeleke

Former senator and currently aspiring Governor of Osun state first became popular when we saw a video of him dancing.

He looked like a man in his 20s digging it out at a friend’s party. The fact that he is on the plus side made his dancing antics even funnier.

Cracks in APC as 20 senators plan to defect to PDP, NNPP others

Published

No fewer than 20 senators are set to dump the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and other political parties.

,

The ruling party, which had earlier lost over 10 senators to the opposition parties is troubled by the wave of defection as more lawmakers that lost their return tickets to the National Assembly during the party primaries are set to leave the party.

On Wednesday, June 22, 2022, Senator Dauda Haliru Jika representing Bauchi Central, announced his defection to the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP).

Worried by the wave of defection in the party, the National Chairman of the APC, Abdullahi Adamu, met with the APC senators behind closed doors at the National Assembly complex, Abuja yesterday.

Speaking to journalists after the meeting, Adamu admitted that the APC is worried about the development.

The meeting with the senators was most fruitful. The issue of defection is an unfortunate development when it happens but this is a season where there are all sorts of behaviour in the political space and ours is not an exception.

“In every election year, this kind of thing gives cause for stakeholders to sneeze and Nigeria is not an exception so is the APC, not an exception. I don’t care about what is happening in other parties, my focus is on the APC. But we all know that the occurrence is not only happening in the APC, it’s happening across other political parties too. And because we are the ruling party, our problems are exaggerated before the public.

“There is no responsible leader that would not be worried when he loses one member not to talk of two. At the moment we are faced with the stark reality of our problems. I have committed my colleagues at the National Assembly to face the problem squarely and see the problem as solvable. We are in politics, I don’t know what would happen tomorrow, and nobody does,” he said.

According to Punch, a source in the National Assembly disclosed that not lesser than 20 senators are planning to leave the APC within the next week.

“The party chairman came to have a meeting with the APC senators because he said that they learnt through intelligence that not lesser than 20 more senators were planning to defect to other parties within the next one week.

“The chairman asked each of the aggrieved senators to lay bare their grievances which we all did one after the other. Having heard our problems, the chairman instructed that we put them into writing,” the source said.

The lawmaker said during Adamu’s meeting with them, the party chairman asked the senators to put their complaints into writing and promised to address all issues raised.
