11 Hilarious Excuses Our Politicians Could Give For The Extreme Heat In Nigeria


April 29, 2016
Nigeria is very hot! And what makes it more unbearable is that there’s no light to even power air conditioners or electric fans. On top of that, there’s no fuel to power generators even though some people have been making false promises. A Twitter user, @Zebbook, shared 11 hilarious responses Nigerians should expect from Nigerian politicians concerning the heat in Nigeria:

Journalist: “What are your thoughts on this heat Nigerians are complaining about, and what is the government doing about it?”

2. Lai Mohammed: “This is the result of PDP’s misrule, they stole the ozone layer”.

3. Femi Adesina: “Mr President promised us change, and that includes change in temperature. Change is here, embrace change”.

4. Akinwumi Ambode: “We have signed a $10 million deal with LG to install air conditioning across the Lagos skyline”.

5. Ibe Kachikwu: “I assure you that this heat will disappear by 2pm on 29th May”.

6. Bukola Saraki: “Tinubu wanted the heat to be more than this, but I opposed him out of my love for Nigeria and that’s why they are witch hunting me”.

7. Goodluck Jonathan: “The heat was not this bad when I left power, but Nigerians did not appreciate me”.

8. Adams Oshiomhole: “Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala stole the N100 billion meant for temperature control research”.

9. Nasir El-Rufai: “We’re in talks with General Electric to see how they can generate power from this heat”.

10. Rauf Aregbesola: “I just approved payment of January salary so Osun workers can buy hand fans”.

11. Aliko Dangote: “Next week, we are commissioning the Dangote fan factory. By 2030, Australia will be buying fans from us”.

12. Ben Bruce: *Tweets* “When Naira is weak and inflation is high automatically there will be heat. This is common sense”.
