To say that we are tired of Nigerian politicians, might be the understatement of the year. But our biggest problem with Nigerian politicians might be the fact that they don’t seem to know what their jobs entail. Here’s every time we’ve caught them doing everything but their jobs.

Rauf Aregbesola playing dress up in school uniform

We asked around and nobody could figure out why this picture came to be. Was he trying to show the primary school students that he was one of them? Or helping them model their school uniform?

And here’s Rochas Okorocha roasting corn because what else is left to govern in Imo state.

You know all the roads are fixed, there are enough schools and hospitals the next thing the governor needs to be doing with his time is roasting corn.

Here’s Okorocha again in a school uniform supposedly teaching children.

What’s the need to employ qualified teachers to teach the children of Imo when he can do it himself.

How else can Iyiola Omisore show that he’s truly a man of the people other than riding around on an okada?

When Rotimi Amaechi decided that being a governor wasn’t challenging enough for him, he decided to add hairdressing to his C.V.

Then there’s the time Dino Melaye decided that being a video vixen was his true calling.

You people are the ones forcing him to continue being a senator.

When Buhari decided that being president is merely a side gig and being a travel blogger is what he really wants to be in life.

Lagos today, London tomorrow. Baby boy goals.

When Fayose decided to become a tailor.

What a humble and hardworking politician, sewing his own clothes.

Here’s Fayose again selling ewa-agayin

At this point, we need to recognize that Fayose’s antics are a cry for help. Someone is clearly forcing him to continue being a politician.

When they decided to turn the senate building into a wrestling ground.

Can you see that their role models are Mohammed Ali and Bash Ali.

We know you as tired as we are of all theses Nigerian politicians as we are.

So if you still haven’t collected your PVC you had better go now, the deadline is August 17, 2018, so you know you don’t have a lot of time left.
