Vice President Yemi Osinbajo (SAN) has made a veiled mockery of the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the just concluded governorship election of Osun State, Senator Ademola Adeleke and his counterpart from Kogi State, Dino Malaye for being humorous.
Osinbajo, who spoke at the Independence Gala night held at the Banquet hall of the Presidential Villa on Monday night, 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 added that Adeleke provided humour by dancing while Senator Melaye made people to laugh by claiming to escape assassination by hiding on a tree top for 11 hours.
Osinbajo said: “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.
