Vice President Yemi Osinbajo is currently getting a lot of heat for reportedly opting to learn the trending “shaku shaku” dance steps ahead of the 2019 elections.
The Senator representing Bayelsa East at the National Assembly, Ben Murray Bruce, berated the Prof Osinbajo for not rather doing more to restore the country’s economy and providing jobs for the teaming jobless youths.
Thesheet.ng notes that Osinbajo had on Sunday disclosed that he was learning the ‘Shaku Shaku’ dance steps ahead of campaigns for the 2019 election when he appeared as a Special Guest of Honour at the launch of Five Fascinating Books written by Funmilayo Braithwaite.
But the Bayelsa Senator wondered why Osinbajo should be interested in dancing ‘shaku shaku’ when Nigeria is rated one of the poorest countries in the world.
In a tweet on Monday, Senator Ben Bruce said, “Under your watch, 11 million jobs created by other administrations have been lost, Naira has lost 80% of her value and Nigeria has been named the world headquarters for extreme poverty, yet @ProfOsinbajo’s priority is learning ‘shaku shaku’ dance? I would laugh if I wasn’t so sad.”

As expected, other Nigerians also reacted to the Vice President’s comments:
it is an aberration to be celebrating or learning a celebratory dance when your house is on fire..
Indeed I am disappointed in the VP for such a dastardly statement. As it shows the present government only care about remaining in office and not its people.
I weep for my nation

Its good he is learning Shaku shaky, he will have a grand home coming in Lagos come may for his retirement.
Its Quite unfortunate that a professor of law and pastor will go down in history as an engine to the two worst political con men in Nigeria in Tinibu and Buhari.

Our people say that
‘The dancing old woman will later feel the effect in her waist’
So let’s wait and see how shaku shaku dance will convince hungry & angry people to vote for them come 2019.
