Uzodimma reacts to 'yahoo yahoo' governors' allegation
Speaking on the description of some governors as 'Yahoo Yahoo' by their colleague from Ondo state, Rotimi Akeredolu, Uzodimma noted no one has been able to give an explanation to what that means.
“He talked of my colleagues calling them “yahoo yahoo”. I appeared on Politics Today on Channels and this question came and I answered it.
“Up till now, nobody is able to tell me the meaning of “yahoo yahoo”. And if I don’t understand it, I don’t see how I can respond to it. I don’t know whether it means good or bad."
"Maybe it means good. If I condemn it, it means I’m condemning a good thing. Maybe you help me to interpret “yahoo yahoo” and then we can manage it from there.”
