Popular skit maker and social media comedian, Josh Alfred aka Josh2Funny has explained why he and other skit makers visited Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo last week.

The comedian in an interview with Punch said the visit was  part of activities for the Nigeria Skits Industry Awards, organised by a former member of the House of Representatives, Bimbo Daramola.

“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”.

The comedian also said that no skit maker was paid for the visit to the Vice President.

“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”.
