That Buhari “spoke” to us in HAUSA language is bad enough ESPECIALLY in this period of REGIONAL AGITATIONS flowing from all corners;
In my opinion ,that “MESSAGE” was NOT meant for the IGBOS,YORUBA,IGALAS,EDOS,IBIBIOS,EFIKS etc.IT WAS MEANT FOR NIGERIAN HAUSAS…. BECAUSE ENGLISH LANGUAGE is still the OFFICIAL LANGUAGE of speaking with Nigerians EXCEPT OF COURSE HE IS TELLING US THAT HE BELONGS “not to everybody” but to “HAUSA BODY…”
That he “chose” the BBC HAUSA SERVICE & not the BBC WORLD is in my opinion a VERY BAD judgment on the part of his media handlers and they should be queried;
That in my opinion,the voice we heard,if it was BUHARI’S has NOT HELPED doused SPECULATION on the state of his HEALTH BECAUSE THAT VOICE(though in HAUSA language) WAS WEAK, LABOURED,TIRED & WAS THAT OF SOMEONE WHO SHOULD BE SPARED THIS EMBARRASSMENT BY THE “CABAL”
LAST NOTE: THERE’S NOTHING WRONG IN SPEAKING IN YOUR LANGUAGE. IN FACT I USED TO “FIGHT” MY CHILDREN IN THEIR GROWING UP YEARS WHEN THEY GREETED ME IN “ENGLISH” LANGUAGE. THAT’S THE REASON I ADMIRE THE IGBOS AND HAUSAS FOR TRAINING THEIR CHILDREN TO SPEAK THEIR MOTHER’S TONGUE ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD….BUT IT’S RUDENESS OF THE HIGHEST ORDER TO PERSISTENTLY SPEAK YOUR “DIALECT” IN A CIVILISED SETTING THAT DOES NOT DEMAND IT…!!!
THAT IS THE REASON IT WILL BE WRONG AND RUDE FOR ME AS A CHRISTIAN TO SPEAK ENTIRELY IN TONGUES OR FOR A MUSLIM TO SPEAK IN ARABIC WHEN CALLED UPON TO PRAY AT A PUBLIC GATHERING …!!!
