Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has trolled Senator Ademola Adeleke who was PDP’s governorship candidate in the just concluded governorship election of Osun state, and also Senator Dino Malaye.
Osinbajo ridiculed both men during the Independence Gala night held at the Banquet hall of the Presidential Villa.
According to him, Adeleke provided humor by dancing while Dino Melaye made people to laugh when he claimed to have hid on a tree for 11 hours after escaping assassination.
He 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.
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.”
Osinbajo makes mockery of Dino Melaye and dancing Senator Adeleke
Recall that Senator Dino Melaye narrated his ordeal in the hands of people he alleged to have kidnapped him on his way to a court house. According to him, he outsmarted them and hid on a tree for hours.
“They started shouting that they wanted to burn me, they said ‘burn him, burn him down,’ and crossed the road to look for tyres to set the vehicle on fire,” Mr Melaye said.
“I jumped into the bush, and I started running,” Mr Melaye said. “They pursued me and I was able to outmanoeuvre them and climb a tree.
“I was on top of the three when I saw them run past looking frantically for me. When they didn’t find me, they also ran back,” He said.
