I make money from correcting gbagaun, so I am happy in my job and very fulfilled. And in my original post, I offered to help the guy 'write right'.
why not fight forr local government chairman in your community, correct your life errors because pointing into other people mistakes won't make difference in their life, only their account and families matter to them

I see many of such in interview sessions and even banks daily. That is what happens when attention shifts from foundational issues to materialism. This is just the beginning. I foresee a time in the near future when even the president, governors and state/national assembly members in Nigeria would write and speak like that, when the so-called youths take over power. Nigerias sure needs a holistic overhaul and liberation in all ramifications.

I have not had the patience to read all the comments but the problem is identifiable. It is no laughing matter;Nigeria should actually weep. Our future and the future of our children will largely depend on how much we invest in education. Spoken/written English errors are only a symptom of the greater ill that has bedevilled our learning system. No nation has attained greatness without educating its people. It is not in the mass of numbers but the quality of the mass or populace. Look at China, India, Brazil, Indonesia or Malaysia, there strength lies not only in their numbers but even more, the depth of knowledge they have attained. For us to break out of underdevelopment, our government must MASSIVELY invest in education. Take statistics of our public schools, what can you find? Nothing. The schools are dilapidated, the teachers are not well paid so good hands are not longer in the system, no room for knowledge to thrive. Not many graduates desire to become teachers so it may then become the space for the uncooked graduates( no attempt to belittle them here!).What is the result? Gabbage in, gabbage out. I weep cry. Let us laugh less, let us be sobber, let us work more. The leaders who made the mark in our history enjoyed free education. But what do we have now, only private schools. Sometimes, I am tempted to think the ruling class deliberately destroyed the educational system to increase the gap between the rich and the poor. How? Knowledge liberates. If there are few people in school, it is easy to continue to steal without opposition or manipulate the following. To buttress this, consider the US government or any advanced government, it is never easy for the government to misbehave because the informed populace will ask questions. Education is the only leveler. It can even out the gap between the rich and the poor; and can also close the gap between the advanced and underdeveloped nations. Until Nigeria gives its people a quality education, it will amount to nothing other than a sleeping giant or a lion on paper.

I strongly suspect d writer was merely fooling around, trying to attract attention. Its easy to see deliberate mistakes

I strongly agree with you. I'm not very sure its real. Besides, grammar apart, this person is saying the truth. He has brought our attention to what a lot of people are too blind to see. And above all, he has shown to us how bad Nigerian educational system is.

If you hit hammer on my head? Anyway, I am not surprised. Your posts and comments on nairaland reek of your limited understanding about life and its issues, therefore you can't see relevant comments on my posts.

Like I advised you earlier, plan realistic goals in the coming year so that if luck shines on you and you begin to live a life worthy of documentation, you can give someone that is not like me your life profile. Because for me, I'd rather truly go wash a transformer (like someone said), than edit your life profile.

I can't see why Mortee's being crucified for speaking the truth. Quite a number of Nigerian graduates have terrible written AND spoken English, and that's a fact. Let's even ignore the write-up Mortee copied and pasted here.

Watch the average Nollywood movie, with graduates who supposedly graduated from decent universities in Nigeria - some even did their masters degrees outside Nigeria. Yet their spoken English will make you cringe. Then worse still, the editors don't (can't?) spot their errors, and correct them before the movies are aired! That is disgraceful!

For those comparing the poor English spoken by Italians, Chinese, Dutch etc. that doesn't make any sense. For these guys have done well to speak English at any level! English isn't their language. English is the common language spoken in Nigeria, that's what's taught in schools. Some folk here are saying these guys with poor English in Nigeria will get better, "they're still learning." Still learning?? After primary three, anyone should be fully conversant with spoken English, and definitely after primary five, should be proficient in both spoken AND written English.

The average Nigerian doesn't like to be told the truth, they can't stan criticism of any sort. Any well-meaning correction invariably leads to verbal abuse. And until the average Nigerian puts his / her hands up, and admit there's a deep-rooted problem, there'll never be any progress.

Face the reality, english writting and oral are not the problem of nigerian economy, speaking english does not determine success, rather than make research and make you brain think wider and bringing your imaginations and dreams into reality,some folks sit down discussing errors and mistakes of other people while the people discussed about are busy making money, they don't even have time for english because they have something more busy than just wasting time on another country language, it is better late than never for some folks here....investment,property,money are true english

It seems many believe English Language is proof of being educated(whatever that means). Always bear in mind that English is just another language and more so, not native to Nigeria. There is nothing to mock in a "graduate" who cannot speak another man's language.

Bro, I understand where you're coming from - to a certain degree.

However, English IS the spoken language in Nigeria, it's taught in schools across the country. There's no excuse for being poor when it comes to speaking and writing English in Nigeria. If a primary six pupil isn't fully proficient in English, then that means that pupil just sat in class, from primary one to six, and simply declined to learn.

Citing English as another man's language is a cop-out, and not a valid reason for bad written and spoken grammar.

#heavesasighofrelief# Long last somebody understands my point. Thanks for your comments o.

And for those who still think I should go wash transformer instead of discussing people's grammatical errors, let me tell you - it is in discussing people's errors that I earn a living. I am a copy editor, not just because I have to work, but because it's what I am so in love with. I started in my final year in school, went for NYSC and solely edited our quarterly newsletters and the annual magazine. And believe me, the job I had in school was waiting for me with a letter of promotion.

I am not trying to blow my own trumpet, but just encouraging people like born2fuck to find other things they can spend their time on instead of using free browsing cheats to deliberately be senseless when important issues are being discussed.

You make me laugh, Wale. If people write the way you do, it will be an easy task "spotting their grammatically errors", and believe me, I would have made an extra fortune from you.
I won't banter words with you again having found out that you can only talk with a little degree of knowledge about just one topic, and you don't even explore the positive sides of it either.

Rich4god: And so what.... Why are Nigerians so obsessed about english. Is English our mother's tongue?. I could remember, during my IT days in one of the Nigeria Breweries plant, the brewery manager cant even speak english let alone speaking with error, but he was the number one man at the brewery and perfoming his duties perfectly. So i really dont know what we Nigerians see in another man's language.
although the grammar is bad, but I salute the courage he has to write.
I know one of our gr8 philantropic gospel ministers in Naija, his spoken English was very poor in the 90's but now speaks Queen's English.
My guy, don't worry, there's room for improvement.
