Outside their very annoying propaganda and well-rehearsed political statements, some Nigerian politicians can be fun.

Now we know that if Nigerians kick his party, APC out of government in 2019, Mr Lai Mohammed can fall back on comedy.

The Minister of Information and Culture got guests at a wedding reception, on Saturday in Ilorin roaring with laughter following his hilarious remarks.

He was the chairman at the reception of the wedding of Tolulope Ajibola and Kolapo Faleye, both petroleum engineers.

As usual, it was time for the chairman’s speech and it turned out to be one that would make the likes of Seyi Law sit up.

Addressing the couple and guests, the minister said: “I am so delighted to be invited to be the chairman of this wedding ceremony because wedding ceremony is a thing of joy.

“I pray that happiness will not cease from our homes.

Mohammed, though a staunch Muslim, quoted from the Holy Bible to the admiration of guests.

Speaking unrehearsed, he said: “I will start my address by referring us to the Book of Isaiah chapter 4, verse 1 which says:

“The time shall come when seven women shall take hold of one man and say food, shelter we shall provide, please let us bear your name to save us this disgrace.

“So, I rejoice with Pelumi that God has given you, your own husband. I pray your union shall be fruitful and enduring.

“To the groom, I want to refer you to the Book of Deuteronomy 24:5 which says: When a man weds, he shall not be called upon to go to war or work. He shall stay in the house with the wife for one full year.

“I am going to speak with Mr. Faleye to allow you to stay for one year so that you can do your duty."

Not done with the amused guests, the minister dropped his last advice which threw the audience in the hall into uncontrollable laughter.

“I am going to end my address by giving you a valuable advice. By the Grace of God, Pelumi will be fruitful and give birth to male and female children.

“I am giving you this advice based on 38 years of experience in marriage with my wife, here, pointing to Alhaja Kudirat, sitting by his side.

“Whenever, Pelumi takes in and you want to know whether the baby will be a boy or a girl, you need not go to any hospital or do any scanning.

“Follow my example which had worked and never failed.

“When the pregnancy is eight months old, take a brand new N1000 note, put it in the navel of Pelumi. If the baby moves, it is a girl.  If it does not move, it is a boy. Don’t ask me why.”

Many Comedians of the Federal Republic of Nigeria must be clapping at this.
