APC Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole is currently trending on social media after his terrible English blunder was noted in a video.
Here is a video of Adams Oshiomhole who was the Governor of Edo State on the platform of the Action Congress from November 2008 to November 2016 and the president of the Nigeria Labour Congress during President Olusegun Obasanjo’s administration, addressing the press and also making a terrible English blunder;
Few months ago also, a video of Ibrahim Idris, inspector-general of police (IGP), struggling to read a speech trended online. In the video, Idris found it difficult to pronounce the words, as he constantly repeated “I mean” and “transmission”.
Idris was said to have been caught in the “embarrassing” video tweeted by Voice of Liberty, when he visited Kano to inaugurate the police technical intelligence unit in the state.
“I mean, transmission, I mean effort, that the transmission cooperation to transmission, I mean transmission to have effect, ehm, apprehend, I mean, apprehensive towards the recommendation, recommended formation effective and effect, I mean, apprehensive at the transmission of…and transmission and transmission for the effective in the police command,” Idris said.
After several attempts to get his speech right, the IGP, struggling with his paper, apologised to his audience.
“Sorry, I’m sorry please,” he said.
However, Ibrahim’s struggle did not end there. A man in suit joined him to help hold down his script, and even helped with the pronunciation of the words. But this didn’t make the reading any better for the IGP.
“All effective the transmission, other transmission, I can state without contradiction that I have commissioned what?” he continued.
“Over transmission of, over transmission of, over all kidnapping, armed robbery and other heinous crimes, I mean, ehm, commission transmission, recommendation transmission.”
It was gathered that after the video trended, a Liberty Television journalist, Aminu Nurudeen, suspected who posted the viral video went into hiding.
