Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai says Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo is the current chairman of a group he called“ Nigerian Association of Short People.”
In a tweet on Monday, El-Rufai jokingly said short people are represented in the “highest echelons of governance.”
“Yes…..I remember this @Tejubabyfacetv interview in 2010…..how time flies….HE VP Osinbajo is the current chairman of the Nigerian Association of Short People….so we are represented at the highest echelons of governance! Thanks Teju. – @elrufai,” he tweeted.
The governor sent out the tweet after a comedian,Gbadewonuola Olateju Oyelakin, better known as Teju Babyface, tweeted an excerpt of an interview he had with him in 2010.
“I AM A MEMBER OF THE NIGERIAN ASSOCIATION OF SHORT PEOPLE! @elrufai is a self deprecating character. Sir, I am taller than you o. Hian!,” the comedian tweeted.
In the short clip shared by Teju Babyface, El-Rufai said he used to be secretary-general of the short people association.
“I used to be the secretary-general… at a point at my teenage years, in my early 20s I had big issues with my height because you know all the pretty girls turn out to be taller than me.
“But with time, I got over it. I managed to get a pretty and intelligent woman to marry who was an inch shorter than me,”he said.
