*ASK A NIGERIAN POLITICIAN WHAT THEY THINK ABOUT THIS HOT WEATHER CONDITION* *Journalist*: what are your thoughts on this heat Nigerians are complaining about and what is the government doing about it: RESPONSES: *LAI MOHAMMED*: this is the result of PDP’s misrule, they stole the ozone layer. *FEMI ADESINA*: Mr. President promised us change and that includes change in temperature. CHANGE IS HERE, EMBRACE IT. *AKINWUMI AMBODE*: We have signed a $10million deal with LG to install air conditioners across the Lagos skyline. *IBE KACHUKWU*: I assure you the heat will disappear by 2pm 29th May. *BUKOLA SARAKl*: Tinubu wanted the heat to be more than this but i opposed him, out of my love for Nigeria and that is why they are witch-hunting me. *GOODLUCK JONATHAN*: This heat was not this bad when I left office/ power but Nigerians did not appreciate me. *ADAMS OSHIMOLE*: Ngozi Okonjo- Iweala stole the N100 billion meant for temperature control Research. *NASIR ELRUFAI*: We are in talks with General Electric to see how they can generate power for Kaduna from the heat. *RAUF AREGBESOLA*: I have just approved payment of January salary so that Osun workers can buy hand fan. *ALIKO DANGOTE*: Next week, we are commissioning the Dangote Fan Factory; by 2030 Australia will be buying fans from us. *BEN MURRAY-BRUCE: *tweets* when Naira is weak and inflation is high automatically there will be heat. This is common sense. *NGOZI OKONJO-IWEALA*: Under the last administration there was no political will to address climatic change: *PRESIDENT BUHARI: From USA* ... this heat is kwarupt because Nigeria is kwarupt and I will fight every form of kwaruption involved and responsible for this heat and every kwarupt heat will go to jail. **

Nice one, OP. This is good for a proper flow of the English language and would be most beneficial to those who want to take English language proficiency tests.
