From what we’ve been told by his media handlers, the president-elect, Bola Tinubu, is in France to rest. Although, if we’re to believe Babatunde Fashola, Mr Tinubu is not resting but actually working and ‘networking’. While away, it is unlikely he’ll find his favourite agbado anywhere on the streets of Paris. But if he could escape from the horde of people who have trailed him to France in search of ministerial appointments, on almost every street corner, he’ll find a boulangerie where he can buy croissants and baguettes. These are French staples that are eaten at all times of the day.
Picture the scene – Mr Tinubu gets back to his hotel suite clutching a bag full of bread rolls and yells to his team of advisers “look what I brought back guys” and they all sing “baba, you are truly great…on your mandate, on your mandate, on your mandate, we shall stand”.
