Popular comedian, Lawrence Oluwaseyitan Aletile, aka Seyi Law, has labelled those condemning the long motorcade that followed President Bola Tinubu when he arrived in Lagos from London a few days ago as “idiots”.

He said there was no more appropriate way to ascertain that the critics were mentally ill than their display of “foolishness” by assuming all the cars were Tinubu’s motorcade. The comedian said the critics would have claimed that the president lacks legitimacy if there were no crowd to welcome at the airport. DAILY POST
