The Director-General of the National Council for Arts and Culture, Olusegun Runsewe, on Friday labelled controversial cross-dresser, Idris Okuneye aka Bobrisky a national embarrassment.
Runsewe, who spoke on Platform, a programme of the Nigerian Television Authority, mocked Bobrisky, asking why he (Bobrisky) had not called the prominent people he knows to deal with him (DG).
Two weeks ago, the NCAC DG had condemned Bobrisky, saying if nothing was done to stop the celebrity immediately, it might be too late when something was eventually done.
In reaction, Bobrisky took to his Instagram page to dare Runsewe, saying, “It’s then he will know that I roll with his bosses in government, not someone at his level. So, he left serious issues in Nigeria to address Bobrisky; but I popular sha.”
When Runsewe was asked to comment on the incident, he said,“I am sure you are referring to Bobrisky. That is a national disaster.
He is an embarrassment to this country. He said he deals with my bosses but that is for yesterday. Today, if he deals with my bosses when his party was to take place on Saturday, why didn’t he call my bosses to tell me to open the door?
“We are going to issue a statement very soon; if we catch anybody on the street disgracing this country — there is law and order in this country. He was only dropping names. He knows nobody. That statement he made is enough to destroy the credibility of our country.”
