Abuja – The Federal Government of Nigeria has commissioned a wax statue of President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan to be sent to UK tourist attraction, Madame Tussauds.

The decision follows a state sponsored visit made to the famous attraction. Visiting delegates where able to take pictures with wax models of The Incredible Hulk, Captain Jack Sparrow, The Royal Family, and Michael Jackson, but they were dismayed to discover that President Jonathan’s statue was not amongst the displayed effigies.

Alarmed at the embarrassing omission, upon returning to Nigeria the delegates reported their findings to Aso Rock whereupon a special committee was setup to look into the matter of President Jonathan’s missing wax statue in Madam Tussauds.

Following a senate hearing and a presentation by the GEJ dummy committee, a Federal Government contract was awarded to an indigenous Wax Statue company, Waxex Group of Companies, for the sum of $8,000,000. A separate contract was awarded to Waxtins Ltd, another Nigerian business, to produce a wax statue of the first lady at the sum of $1.6 million.

Once the President and the First Ladies wax statues are completed, a Presidential banquet would be held to mark the momentous occasion before the figures are flown on specially fitted private jets to the Nigerian Embassy in England.

The Nigerian Ambassador would then present the statues to Madam Tussauds and also accept their apology for the oversight of failing to have on display, the dummy of the President of the most populous African nation in the Universe.
