Tambuwal: 48 Garlands For The Peoples’ Rep-By Imam Imam

On January 10, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, added a year to his life and his Special Adviser on Media and Public Affairs, Imam Imam, took out time to pen him a note.  Hear Him:

Rape Joke Controversy: Basketmouth Yet to Get that ‘Jokes Should Have Limit” –

Barely days after he made a half-hearted apology for the crude joke he made about rape, which got him censure, Basketmouth is truly yet to get  it. During an interview with Adesope Olajide of Vox Africa, he said JOKES SHOULD HAVE NO LIMIT.

Hear him on the Rape Joke Controversy: “Definitely I am sorry about what happened. The people that it offended…I won’t say the people that misunderstood but the people that it offended. It limits me though. Now it limits the type of jokes I’m going to be cracking right now. Sadly, every joke hits people the wrong way. If I crack jokes about food, there are people in third world countries saying, ‘Why is he cracking jokes about food? Have I chop na?’ They will just go on twitter and say ‘This guy should stop cracking jokes about food, I haven’t eaten’.”
