Under the caption, “The Assault on Nigerian Languages”, ThisDay newspaper’s Editorial of Wednesday, March 16, 2011 p.19 bemoaned the lack of attention that’s generally being given to our local languages and stressed that they “are becoming extinct because not only are parents denying their children the opportunity to communicate in their mother tongue, they themselves shy away from speaking their local dialect.” Furthermore, it stated that, “The English language has sadly become the preferred language of communication.” If English language, the nation’s official lingua franca was described as “sadly” “the preferred language of communication” there’s no better way of saying that the language is only struggling to survive in a multi-ethnic composition called Nigeria.

NAIJA POLITIKS: WEN MAI PIPUL SE (1)

After writing; “Mai pipul se…” in Naija (aka Nigerian Pidgin), I have never been the same again. My whole thoughts have been dominated by the feelings of the prospect of being urged to come back home soon by mai pipul to join in the on-going political process aimed at securing the “dividends of democracy”; a sing song they hear on national radio and television every day.
