Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila has been tackled by some Nigerians for dancing to the hit song ‘Buga’ by Nigerian singer, Kizz Daniel.
Naija News reports that the lawmaker was at his constituency in Surulere, on Thursday, for a meeting on voters sensitization, ahead of the 2023 election.
In the video sighted online, Gbajabiamila was seen dancing in the presence of a large crowd, while encouraging them to vote in the upcoming election.
He also urged them to show their Permanent Voter’s Card saying, “Operation show your PVC la wa yi.’’
However, many netizens slammed the lawmaker for being insensitive about the current situation of the country.
