The Most Ridiculous Things That Have Happened In 2018!

October 31, 2018

Bananas are a little too mainstream for monkeys around here, if it’s not hard currency, please forget it!

When 70 million Naira belonging to the Northern Senators Forum went missing from the farm of its chairman- Senator Abdullahi Adamu, the most logical culprit had to be blamed – a monkey that had been ravaging the Senator’s farm.

We kid you not!

Next time you see a snake in Nigeria, before attempting to run or kill it, sharply ask if it has any 1 million it’s not using, they’re balling these days

With a whopping 36 million naira missing from the vault of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, a clerk working there searched her church mind and admitted that a really hungry snake decided to have a taste of that naira, 36 million of it to be precise.

If you spent time studying overnight for WAEC, cramming formulas, sorry for you oh! Who knew you could be a whole president without even suffering through junior WAEC?

As we all know, our president has been unable to produce his WAEC certificate because the military he conscripted to in 1961, remains in possession of his credentials.

Maybe he did so well, they decided to keep it for good luck. No? well…

Imagine The Avengers agreed to pick a member to fight Thanos , then every member got upset that they weren’t chosen and went on to fight him anyway. This is the story of PACT

To contest the 2019 presidential elections, a number of political aspirants banded together to form PACT to pick a consensus candidate.

When results were announced, the defeated members realised nope, they weren’t doing again and returned to their independent parties to contest the presidential elections.

True story!

When he’s not erecting statues, you can find the Imo State Governor running his state the best way he knows how — like a family business!

FYI, the Governor’s sister is currently responsible for ensuring the citizens of Imo state are happy and fulfilled.

His wife has been charged with overseeing 4 ministries in the past and he has also endorsed his son-in-law for Governor following the end of his tenure.

Also, the Imo State Governor is so invested in Lagos Sate, he had the office of Special Assistant on Lagos Affairs created in 2011 for his tenure

Serving in this very, very serious role was no other than Nollywood sweetheart- Nkiru Sylvanus, who sadly lost the role in 2012.

What is a mission Impossible to a Nigerian senator? Faced between a rock and a hard place, Dino Melaye is here to let you know there’s always an option

While being carted away to answer for allegations made against him, Dino Melaye, sensing the vehicle was changing destinations did what any normal person would do in that circumstance, jump down and threaten to kill himself.

Do the Nigerians want good roads, affordable access to healthcare and education or do they want senators that dance for them?

Dancing senators obviously! Never one to shy away from a two-step, Nigerians were blessed with a senator who knows a thing or two about breaking it down on the dance floor.

Thankfully, 2018 isn’t done with us yet! Stay tuned for a little more drama straight from Nigeria
