International comedian, Trevor Noah is no doubt one of the best comedians out there so it didn’t come as a surprise when he jumped on the comments made by Audu Ogbeh’s about pizza and made fun of it.
The stand-up comedian and host of ‘The Daily Show’ shared a video of the comments made by the Minister of Agriculture, Audu Ogbeh where he revealed that some Nigerians usually order for pizza from London, a statement which has been found outrageous and at the same time embarrassing.
Well, Trevor Noah in his spontaneous nature jumped on it and made fun of it on his show which actually got everyone laughing.
Back home in Nigeria, not so many people find this statement funny and for some, it felt like the minister exaggerated the whole thing. It is not clear if there are actually Nigerians who order for pizza from London daily but it certainly sounds ridiculous.
According to Minister of Agriculture, Audu Ogbeh, Nigerians now order Pizza from abroad through British Airways. Ogbeh made the disclosure while addressing the Senate Committee on Agriculture on Wednesday, March 27, 2019. He made the remark while buttressing a point about a nation’s craze for everything imported.
In Ogbeh’s words, “Do you know, Sir, that there are Nigerians who use their cell phones to import pizza from London; they buy in London and bring it on British Airways in the morning to pick up at the airport. It is a very annoying situation and we have to move a lot faster in cutting down some of these things,” he said.
