Nigerian Vice-President, Yemi Osinbajo, says he is learning the ‘shaku shaku’ dance ahead of the 2019 general election.
‘Shaku Shaku’ is a popular dance step common among entertainers and young Nigerians.
The vice-president said learning a popular dance move ahead of the 2019 elections will come in handy.
Osinbajo made the tongue-in-cheek comment at the launch of five books written by Funmilayo Braithwaite in Abuja on Sunday.
He said nobody knows what will work in Nigerian politics, insinuating that dancing helped Ademola Adeleke win votes in the Osun governorship election.
The vice-president said he believes that reading the books would provide answers to “some of the questions raised in our political lives as well; I know that is one of the reasons Alhaji Shittu Kabir, chairman, Advanced Peoples Democratic Alliance (APDA), is here.
“As a matter of fact, for those of us who are politicians, when you see ‘Politicrisis’; especially as elections approach, you might think there is 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 never know what works.
“I can never forget my dear friend in one of the states who just danced his way through the campaigns; all he did was dance; he did nothing else but dance and he won 250,000 votes.
“So myself and Kabir are now learning shaku shaku; we have to learn; who knows what will win.”
He lauded the author, saying she is constantly trying to answer the various questions of life.
