People say Nigerians like to answer a question with another one. Is this our culture?
Take for instance I walk up to my brother and ask:

Question: Where you dey go?
Answer: Abi you wan follow me?

Do you guys experience this? What are usual "quanswer" you get for questions you ask?
Re: ***nigerian Culture To Answer A Question With Another Question?*** by odumchi: 2:51am On Nov 22, 2012
I thinks it's because of the generally cautious and over scrupulous nature of Nigerians.

Here are some more examples:

Q - Where your house?
A - Abi dem send you?

Q - How much money you get for pocket?
A - How it take concern you?

Q - Whose car be dat?
A - Abi na your papa own?

its appears to be a popular behavioral pattern but not necessarily a Nigerian culture.
