It is suddenly the new normal to faint if you are under pressure. In Nigeria, if you are a public office holder and you are suddenly called to account for the office, all your need to do is faint. The nation is awash with the theartrics pulled this morning by the acting chairman of the Niger Delta Development Commission NDDC, Prof. Keme Pondei who fainted while under interrogation by the House Committee investigating the spending of over 40billion naira. Oga Pondei was quick to faint because that was obviously the right thing to do. Afterall before he fainted, some other politicians had fainted.
Before Pondei, there was Dino Melaye, the matter fainter. Oga SDM as he is better called is known for his theatrics of fainting. He resisted police arrest for over 8 days and just after several pleas and calls for his surrender. When he eventually did, he fainted at the police station.
President Buhari has claimed he fainted on the eve of election declaring when he received a call from the incumbent President Jonathan, who called him to congratulate him on his victory.
And the fainting game has started. Who is next??
