Osinbajo learning ‘shaku shaku’ ahead of 2019 election campaign

Posted on

Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo revealed over the weekend that he has been learning the ‘shaku shaku’ dance ahead of the 2019 general election.

Speaking at the launch of five books written by Funmilayo Braithwaite in Abuja, Osinbajo said as a tongue-in-cheek comment that learning a popular dance move ahead of the 2019 elections will come in handy.

He insinuated that dancing helped Ademola Adeleke almost win votes in the Osun governorship election.

“So myself and Kabir are now learning shaku shaku; we have to learn; who knows what will win.”

Meanwhile the vice-president said he believes that reading of the launched books would provide answers to “some of the questions raised in our political lives as well; I know that is one of the reasons Alhaji Shittu Kabir, chairman, Advanced Peoples Democratic Alliance (APDA), is here.

“As a matter of fact, for those of us who are politicians, when you see ‘Politicrisis’; especially as elections approach, you might think there is a formula somewhere.

“Kabir and I and are the opposite sides but we are here to learn; I was saying the other day that politics in Nigeria is becoming very exciting; you never know what works.

“I can never forget my dear friend in one of the states who just danced his way through the campaigns; all he did was dance; he did nothing else but dance and he won 250,000 votes.”

He also lauded the author, saying she is constantly trying to answer the various questions of life.
