[The Presidential blog] Apparently, even President Buhari gets the “Lai” joke

Today, President Buhari presided over the weekly Federal Executive Council meeting for the first time in 7 weeks -after his return from his long medical vacation in the United Kingdom.

It is safe to say that the foremost question on Nigerians’ minds was how long this meeting was going to last considering the fact Vice President Yemi Osinbajo had extended the weekly meets to 7 hours during the time he presided over them while President Buhari was away. We didn’t get that

What we got instead was not so bad, though. We learnt that the President made a joke after the National Assembly and prayers offered by Rotimi Amaechi that he’d not seen the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed. The joke lais in the way he asked:

“I have not seen Lai.”

To which he responded:

“I am here sir”.

Okay maybe it wasn’t so funny.
