Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the Lagos State Governor, has finally met up with a Nigerian comedian, Bodataiye to take delivery of a funny portrait he had drawn of him.
The comedian is known for creating funny portraits that serve as an instrument of amusing or mocking artwork of celebrities.
One of the portraits of Bodataiye caught the eye of Sanwo-Olu himself after he tagged him in the post. Sanwo Olu expressed his desire to meet the artist and take delivery of the drawing.
Bodataiye wrote: I drew his excellency governor of lagos State @jidesanwoolu ,I thank God for the successful work I think his excellency will love it .I still remain the best artist in UAR .
Sanwo-Olu replied him and wrote ;
Really? So, it’s me you drew like this? I’m guessing you’ll like to present it to me, abi? Ok, come and present it to me in my office. Hmmmm…
Sanwo Olu was finally able to meet the creators of the portrait as he took delivery of it and thanked them for their service. The governor promised to pay them for their work in creating such a piece of him.
Meanwhile, the governor of Delta State, Ifeanyi Okowa has urged Muslims across Nigeria to pray diligently for the country’s unity and to make a stand against all types of violence.
The governor made the comment in a message of goodwill to Muslims around the country on the occasion of Eid el Maulud, which marks Prophet Mohammed’s birth (SAW).
Okowa particularly encouraged Muslims and other religious organizations to increase their prayers for required reforms in order to make Nigeria a better place.
In a statement released in Asaba on Monday by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Olisa Ifeajika, Okowa noted that Nigeria is today beset by terrorism, banditry, abduction, aggravated robbery, herders-farmers clashes, and unrests, all of which have hampered the country’s progress and development.
