Governor Nasir El-Rufai engaged in banters last night while reacting to a video shared on Twitter by popular comedian, Teju Babyface.
In the short video from a 2010 interview with the comedian, Governor El-Rufai said he used to be Secretary-General of the Short People Association. He also shared some challenges he had before getting over not being tall enough.
The Kaduna State Governor said in the interview: “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.”
Reacting to a video of the interview after it was shared by Teju Babyface, Governor El-Rufai jokingly described Vice President Yemi Osinbajo as the current chairman of the Nigerian Association of Short People.
He tweeted: “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.”
