When A Dictionary Enters The Wrong Hands: The Case Of Hon Patrick “Igodomigodo” Obahiagbon.

15 March 2010 by Oo

The video below contains the reaction of Obahiagbon, a member of the Nigerian House of Representatives to the deployment of troops by the Nigerian Army Chief without the knowledge of the Acting President Goodluck Jonathan.

 

To be fair to him, he does not speak this way intentionally. From an interview  with vanguard, he said:

Sincerely speaking, I want to tender an unreserved apologia to my colleagues and all those who feel that my language is obscurantist. The truth is that I do not set out deliberately to mystify my audience, to deposit my audience in a portmanteau of indecipherability or in portmanteau of conundrum. No, no, no, no! Far from it.

Apologia accepted sir!
