The New Speaker of the House.....

Is 37 year old Dimeji Bankole. Educated in Sandhurst, Oxford and Harvard.

Obviously the older folks in the House are not pleased but hey. Could this be a sign of changing times? Is he unaffected and free of corruption? Will he bring to the table bright ideas and radicalism? Will he look in the face of the establishment and say to hell with the old ways? Will he be able to balance his youth and dynamism with respect for the older dogs? Disrespect isnt the way to go. Do his degrees and western exposure mean anything? Or did he just get the degrees but is unable to string to words together?

Valid questions but here's what's really on my mind - IS HE SINGLE. Our new speaker is a bit of a cutie with the gap in his teeth and all. What? Finally, a good looking politician. I wonder what he does for fun? What he likes to do when he isnt politicking. He used to be the Chairman of the Committee for Land Transport or something. How did he sneak into politics and i did not know about it? Granted i dont know them all but sheesh...Anyway - can he be caught at NewsCafe having a drink and swaying to the beats of The Ebony Band? Does he come to Lagos at all? Abuja is so boring but if he has to be stuck there, where does he hang out? Sure he isnt very tall but hey...

THE NEW SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE IS A CUTIE OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

LOL

Seriously though - this is a good sign.....

This is a very good sign indeed.
I've tried sourcing images of this subject, but no joy. Besides, what's your own with this man? Sebi you sabi Shah Rukh? To make you a bit envious, the missus got to meet him earlier this year and had a chat with him, and i managed to get his attention when he was unveiling his waxwork at M.Tussauds: http://aworan.wordpress.com/2007/04/03/bollywood-or-bust-up/

@ Anon: I was going to address your tribalistic rudeness, but then why give you the time of day?

Ehen, Uzo, berra person. I do not think that Dimeji is cute, but I do know that he is well educated and hopefully will be given the chance to apply what he knows for the betterment of us all.

Erm, ** trying to establish a connection** he used to date my friend. She is having a hard time coping with the fact that he is going to be splashed all over the news, blogs and what have you...She was only just starting to get over him. Apparently he is totally swoon worthy.

He's also allegedly about to be getting married to Ann Anne Suinner. Remember her? She was the one that took over Agbani's Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria crown when Agbani became Miss World.

I hear he is single though. I like his pedigree though. I hope this is a sign of better things to come.
