I posted this joke some years ago, and while looking over old posts, I stumbled upon it. As always, it made me chuckle. Not because I wish harm on anyone, but simply because the joke is very funny.
Enjoy the 'lighter' side of Nigerian politics....

A driver is stuck in a traffic jam on the motorway. Nothing is  moving.

Suddenly a man knocks on the window. The driver rolls down his window and asks,
"What's going on?"

The man responded, "Militants have kidnapped, OBJ, IBB, Atiku,Buhari, Tony Anenih,
Ahmadu Ali, Dariye, Nnamani, Odili, Ibrahim Mantu, Tinubu, Kalu, Maurice Iwu,
Adedibu, Ibori, Olubunmi  Etteh, and Igbinedion."

They're asking for a $500 million ransom. Otherwise they're going to douse them with
petrol and set them on fire. So, we're going from car to car, taking up a collection."

The driver asks, "How much is everyone contributing, on the average?"

The man  responded, "About a litre of  petrol and a stick of matches."

I wonder what names would be added to the list of 'kidnappees' now that this joke is a few years old.

UPDATE: In some unfortunate news,the father of the former chair of the Central Bank, Charles Soludo, was allegedly kidnapped. According to Nigerian Police, Soludo's family is yet to report the kidnapping. Whatever the case, I can only hope that the elder Soludo is well and that he be with his loved ones.

I guess that's why the 'Jerry Rawlings' option can never happen in Nigeria. Where do you stop?

You can purchase a payday loan at just approximately any loan
power receptacle and in case you never purchase one locally there is actually definitely the web, that
loan is a click away. What are alternatives in finding a solution
to bad consumer credit score?
