The Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai, has joked that Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, is the chairman of the ‘Short People Association of Nigeria’.
El-Rufai tweeted this on Monday night, in response to a video posted by comedian Gbadewonuola Olateju Oyelakin, better known as Teju Babyface on Twitter.
The clip showed the Governor making an appearance on Babyface’s show in 2010.
“Yes…..I remember this @Tejubabyfacetv interview in 2010…..how time flies….HE VP Osinbajo is the current chairman of the Nigerian Association of Short People…
“So we are represented at the highest echelons of governance! Thanks Teju,” El-Rufai wrote.
In the short clip shared by Babyface, El-Rufai made fun of himself, saying he used to be secretary-general of the ‘Short People Association’.
