This is beyond parody. Nigeria’s propaganda minister Lai Mohammed called Senator Dino Melaye, both of whom belong to a party that came to power on a tissue of fanciful lies, a “clown” on Twitter this morning.

Melaye’s clowning credentials are not in dispute. But surely, Lai Mohammed would give him a run for his money on the court-jester stakes. A more appropriate name for their party the All Progressives Congress would have been All Pathetic Clowns.
Nigerians would have seen the funny side with their comedy of errors governance if millions hadn’t been driven into poverty since they came to power two years ago.
