Instagram comedian Josh Alfred popularly known as Josh2funny has opened up on the reason he alongside others visited Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo.
He revealed in an interview with the Punch that the visit was part of the activities for the Nigerian Skit Industry Award.
The visit was planned by a former member of the House of Representatives, Bimbo Daramola.
Josh revealed he decided to visit the vice-president with his colleagues because it would help the industry and give them due recognition.
“We were called upon by the Nigerian Skits Industry Awards to pay a visit to the Vice President in an effort by the organisers to help us get due recognition, just like it is obtainable in the movie and music industries.
“Having a meeting at such level means so much for the industry, and that was why I deemed it very important to be part of the visit.
“However, there is no association of skit makers in Nigeria.
“Not a dime was received by anyone among us for visiting the Vice President.
“We only took a walk around the Villa and talked to Prof Yemi Osinbajo and other representatives at the meeting about the problems bedevilling Nigerian youths.
“We discussed the need for the government to do something worthwhile about the issue of police brutality, the deteriorating state of the educational system, and for permanent voter cards to be made available to all eligible voters.
“One of us, Taaooma, specifically took a lot of time to discuss the issue of police brutality, which affects the youth, while another skit maker, Mr Hyenana, talked about the need for improvement in the educational sector, especially at elementary and secondary levels”.
