Very few people in the political circle are aware the Kwara State All Progressives Congress (APC) Chairman, Hon Ishola Balogun-Fulani was given two nicknames during his tenure as a member of the Kwara State House of Assembly.
Well, for being a funny character and an active lawmaker, Hon BF Ishola, who was the majority leader of the 6th Assembly was nicknamed Lafia and TomTom by colleagues.
Anytime, Balogun-Fulani takes the floor, his humorous contributions consistently spawned laughter and hailing from his colleagues, thereby making the session rowdy. To restore normalcy, Hon BF will tell his colleagues Lafia, Lafia (meaning cool down).
In addition to his Lafia cognomen, the APC chairman was nicknamed TomTom because he never stopped licking the candy during session and outside the Assembly complex.
Hon Balogun Fulani remains the only lawmaker so honoured with two nicknames since the return of democracy.
