Obahiagbon is a disaster.
And I don't see what Okotie said that was 'outrageous' for an ordinary man to understand at least he communicated
and even told us the meaning of any 'big' grammar that came out of his mouth unlike Oga Patrick that seemed to have crammed all his
statements before coming out to make a fool of himself

Akosbaba:

These guys are going to be the first set of africans to create new words in the dictionary

No we are not! the grammer BOTH men are blowing are just words even the middle class/upper class British English people do not use, undecided embarassed

dlox01:

i think YOU have a long way to go. Just coz you dont understand what they say does not mean they are not correct/or speaking crap. To people that understand its music to thier ears and a joy to watch but to people like you its difficult and i think you should go upgrade your skills then you can place such a comment because you are the one that is ignorant
you analyse it, they understand you(1) understand themselves(2) understandz himself(3), u basically understand yourself(1), just step up!!!


Wrong again! i agree with the initial statement, as a public speaker and a representative for your state/country you should be clear and FULLY understood, wink
Meaning use laymans terms for the common people to comprehend the message you are trying to get across, otherwise, you stand the risk of confusing people with unnecessary grammer!!

Would your grandmother understand what this man said, or maybe your aunt or uncle?  undecided
Even the highly educated will be a little confused as to what he is on about! embarassed

Unfortunatly, some 9ja people feel the need to blow grammer to say something so simple and to the point and end up making a fool of themselves in the process, it doesnt show you are smart or HIGHLY EDUCATEED, it shows you have a lack of understanding in the art of communication in particular with the public, hence you cannot EVER properly engage with them because they NEVER understand you. undecided undecided sad angry

The 'normal' working class Nigerian would not have know 'culpability' meant responsibility or lugubrious simply meant sad, Yet Obahiagbon felt the need to use such words! He is showing his weaknesses instead of his strengths,

B: So in essence, what challenge are you giving to your other colleagues?

O: Sactas Simplicitas. They must avoid regular big stouting , suyaing , big stouting and peppersouping. Those are not the real issues. They must be prepared to immerse themselves in societal dialectics. They must put their nose to the grind stone. Chief Obafemi Awolowo the ikene philosopher said the difference between me and my other colleagues, was that when my other colleagues are cavorting in the dark alleys, I am in my library working myself 19 to the dozen.

You cannot succeed in life if you are not disciplined. You must be puritanical in your
predisposition, you must engage in an exercise of self purification and mortification, you must engage in an exercise of self abnegation, you must engage in an exercise of spiritual emulation. You must discipline the flesh. You must conquer the flesh. You must allow the spiritual aspect of you preponderate the material aspect, especially when you have been chosen to represent the people. So that at the end of the day, you can really say: vendi, vidi, vicki

B: what is the meaning of that?

O: I came, I saw, I conquered.

dead this man is a legend. he needs to speak at the UN at least once.

How did this comedian (Patrick Obahiagbon) get elected to represent people who do not understand what he's saying? This underscores the comic state of Nigerian politics.

The guy seems to spend is time reading the English dictionary only. My goodness!

Re: Hon. Patrick Obahiagbon Vs Pastor Chris Okotie by CGKing(m): 9:19pm On Jul 30, 2010
This senator Patrick just pisses me off. Speaking useless grammar that he and his listeners can comprehend. This is supposed to be a platform to inpire his colleagues, inspire change in our nation. If he wants to be an entertainer, he should leave.

Abeg, where Nollywood and dem  comedy producers dey? they really need  these guyz ooo grin

How about a movie call Grammar War starring  Hon. Patrick, Sam Loco and Pastor Chris, that would be a killer comedy grin grin grin
Re: Hon. Patrick Obahiagbon Vs Pastor Chris Okotie by damilola15: 9:39pm On Jul 30, 2010
mcheeeeeeeeeewwwwwww, just so they could appear brilliant/intelligent, they cram some words from the dictionary at night and pour it out at day.

Even if not in English, the best way to communicate with people is to express yourself in simple terms/words.

I do not set out to deposit my audience in a portmanteau of indecipherability

My Mama asked me what this man was saying: I replied "I don't know" I don't understand".

Say you are receiving an emergency call from me. Would you like to hear me say "My house is on fire" or would you rather have me say "A colossal conflagration is masticating my domiciliary edifice"

What Nigeria needs now is not grammar but a sense of national loyalty, purposeful and directional leadership and technocracy. A concoction of English and Latin will not put foods on our tables.
What is the essence of the grammar if even a university graduate would not understand you. They should be schooled in the institution of simple sentences or simplified communication.

Pastor Chris needs to augment his manipulation of the language to an articulated verbose rendition that can be unequivocally juxtaposed with the level of Obihiagbon's indecipherability.
