Akuyili Needs Brighter Grammar Series

Nigerians should begin to hang their heads in shame now as their minister of info. and communication blunders in simple grammar.
You had to be at George Akume’s birthday in Benue state,last week, when she spurted this nonsense:I congratulate you(Akume)for building….
This blunder could have been pardonable in her bedroom, or in an exco meeting with Yar’ Adua, but not before the wall of cameramen and journalists covering the event.
It’s even treasonable for a supposed professional communicator that’s expected to care more for niceties of grammar in public to have made such a dumb mistake.
Obasanjo’s Bell Nursery kids would effortlessly fix this grammatical breach committed by a professor, you know.

Professionalism vs track records
I hate track records,hell knows.
And that’s a pinch of the whole lot of shit with which misplaced track records will smear Nigeria’s ministry of info. and communication.
Boy, how would you compare Frank Nweke – that young,saucy, mischievous apologist of Obasanjo’s – and Ofonagoro,and Chukwumerije – those bad old boys of the khaki regimes – with this pretty madam dressed in a borrowed robe?
Nweke,for instance ,had no track record as a minister. But he had an Advanced Learner Dictionary and something like S.M.O. Aka which he found time to study in spite of his busy schedule.You know he made a smoothing-talking squealer that the BBC respected then.

My fear for Akuyili is: she pretends to be unaware of what over-reaching her ego – in that strange office -could do to her and Nigeria.
Truly, NAFDAC, her former portfolio ,was up her alley because she’s a natural and conscientious narcotic hound. Plus her academic and professional qualification .She was able to do a terrific job sniffing out those drug barons in Aba, Onitsha ,Alaba ,and wherever.And the whole world appreciated that.
But information and communication is a blind alley for her.
She lacks the professional grooming and the perfectionist temperament of a good grammarian that makes a great communicator.

Don’t cringe when you hear her on the BBC and VOA congratulate the nigger in the White House for his success.

    It’s just sad really. I held her in so much awe, but lately I think she’s no different from the power grabbing ‘elite’ that fester about in our society. why couldn’t she just say no.
