Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, on Sunday in Abuja, wittily stated he had been studying the’Shaku Shaku’ dance steps for campaigns before their 2019 general elections.
‘Shaku Shaku’ is a popular and modern dance style common among young Nigerians. Olamide is believed to have brought it into the mainstream in the popular ‘Can!
Osinbajo, who was the Chairman and Special Guest of Honour in the’Launch of Five Interesting Books’ written by Funmilayo Braithwaite, in Abuja on Sunday, said his buddy recently polled large number of votes just by dancing.
He did not disclose ‘his friend’, but it might be the failed governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in Osun State, who polled 250,000 votes in the election, by dance and avoiding TV debates. In accordance with Osinbajo, nobody knows what will work in Nigerian politics.
He said: “And hopefully, we will have the ability to find resolution to a number of questions raised in our political lives as well; I know that is one of the reason Alhaji Shittu Kabir, Chairman, Advanced Peoples Democratic Alliance (APDA) is here.
“As matter of fact, for those of us who are politicians, when you visit’Politicrisis’; particularly as elections approach, you might think there’s 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 don’t know what works.
“I could never forget my beloved friend in one of the states who just danced his way through the campaigns; he did was dance; he did nothing else but dance and he won 250,000 votes.
“Thus myself and Kabir are now learning Shaku Shaku; we need to learn; who knows what will win.
