No comedian anywhere is as funny as Nigerian Comedians-VP Osinbajo
Nigeria’s Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has extolled the vibrancy and expertise of Nigerian creative artists and comedians describing them as enough reason to believe in the future of the country.

Osinbajo made the remarks when he received a delegation of young Nigerian (comedy) Skit Industry practitioners under the auspices of the Nigeria Skits Industry Awards (NSIA), led by its promoter, Hon.

Bimbo Daramola, at the Presidential Villa Abuja.

“I strongly believe that what our young people are doing and what they are capable of, is what will lead our country to where we are meant to be.

“The future is not tomorrow, it is already here and we can see it from just everything you are doing, the global acclaim that you are getting; young people like yourselves, doing something good,” he said.

The Vice President said he has watched some skits, noting that they need all the support they can get to thrive.

“I think that we have incredible talent and we must do something about it …enable these talents, and we must ask ourselves questions on setting realistic goals that can enable these talents flourish.

I must say that just based on the sheer creativity around this, I don’t think that anybody anywhere is as funny as Nigerian comedians.


Social Good
Osinbajo urged the young skit comedians to use their huge following on social media and on the Internet to promote issues for social good and impact, stating that, “everyone with a large following also has a responsibility to draw attention to these issues.


Meanwhile, the vice president highlighted the work of the Technology and Creative Advisory group in shaping policies to encourage the growth of the sector.

“Why I think this engagement (with skit comedians) is important is because this is the way to go.

Let us sit down and look at all the issues and come out with realistic positions that can then become policies, and what sort of support will be required,” he said.

The vice president also spoke on other issues raised by his guests, including; the Twitter ban, the harassment of youths by the police and law enforcement agencies and the need to improve the country’s public education system.
