Family of the Year
That award goes to the presidency where the DSS and NIA did not see eye to eye in the homestead. The EFCC became the area of battle, and DSS called for Magu’s job not to be approved while the NIA wanted him. The president seemed unable to bring this disarray under control. The also-ran was the PDP, who fought a big fight between the Makarfi-led faction and that of Sheriff. Even when Sheriff lost the battle, the party turned on its own flesh during the convention and alienated the vital sector of the electorate: the southwest. A piggish fellow in a gubernatorial garb dismissed the southwest as a factor in the electoral sweepstakes.
Fashionista of the year
That goes to Senator Dino Melaye. In a bid to show he did not go to school without a certificate, he donned a graduation gown in a burlesque show as though a ceremony was on to now graduate him. This is apart from his various appearances as an internet impresario in lurid and other extravagant colours and combinations.
Town crier of the year
The winner is Ayo Fayose, Governor of Ekiti State. He cried and many are surprised he did not get hoarse. His biggest threnody was when President Buhari was sick and he said so many unprintables. He even tried to invite himself to London not to see the queen but the President of Nigeria. He even claimed he had the medical report. He strangely was quiet when Buhari returned in a blaze of new health.
