Drama: VP candidate cannot speak English Language

By Sun Newspaper

Nigerians, who thronged Transcorp Hilton Hotel, venue of presidential debate organised by Nigeria Election Debate Group, yesterday were stunned as one of the vice- presidential candidates did not express himself in English Language.

Moderator of the programme, Eugenia Abu, had disclosed that the vice presidential candidate of United National Party for Development (UNDP), Alhaji Galadima samari, would need the assistance of an intepreter to translate his message to English.

Zamari, who spoke inHausa disclosed that he started politics in 1967 as a member of the defunct Action Group but later moved to the Great Nigeria Peoples Party in the second Republic because a party rooted in the southern part of the country was not acceptable in the North. He assured Nigerians that under the UNDP-led Federal Government, wealth would be equitably distributed.

“I want to see the development of people and that is why I joined the party and that is why I am supporting our presidential candidate. I appeal to Nigerians to cast their votes for our party. We will not relent in our efforts to see to the development of Nigeria.”

National Transformation Party, vice presidential candidate, Gabriel Ogbonna, promised Nigerians an integrated road network to stimulate economic growth.

“If we can embark on such grand plan, Nigeria will be better off because it will create employment. It will help any foreign investor to know where they can put their industry and ferry their goods from one location to the other.”

Vice presidential candidates of the Social Democratic Mega Party, Alhaji Lawal Kazeem, and his counterpart of the Mega Progressive Peoples Party, Alhaji Rasheed Shitta Bey,

Journalists made attempt to find out why Samari decided to address the audience in his native language but he still would not speak english.

PS: How will this VP candidate perform his duty effectively if eventually elected into office as he cannot speak the official language of the country. This country is full of clown.
