Look at these pictures and tell the difference….
Why is it that whenever you see pictures of Western Politicians gathered together they will convey the image of serious politicians engaging in serious discussions very much unlike Nigerian politicians who always convey the image of Laughing their heads off like some foolish buffoons!
Could it be that each group of politicians try to impress their subjects. Bear in mind they are all aware they are being photographed for public consumption.
So while Cameron and Osborne for instance, tries to convey to their voters that they seriously tackling the affairs of state, the Nigerian big man tries to impress their citizens with their over bloated status!
Remember Chinua Achebe’s analogy of the African big man….
