The governor sent out the tweet after Gbadewonuola Olateju Oyelakin, better known as Teju Babyface, tweeted an excerpt of an interview he had with him.

“I AM A MEMBER OF THE NIGERIAN ASSOCIATION OF SHORT PEOPLE! @elrufai is a self deprecating character. Sir, I am taller than you o. Hian!,” the comedian tweeted.

In the short clip shared by Teju Babyface, el-Rufai said he used to be secretary-general of the short people association.

“I used to be the secretary-general… at a point at my teenage years, in my early 20s I had big issues with my height because you know all the pretty girls turn out to be taller than me,” he said.

“But with time, I got over it. I managed to get a pretty and intelligent woman to marry who was an inch shorter than me.”
