    Nigeria is not ready to be serious. This is no joke anymore and we should stop making jokes out of it.
    She needs to stop speaking in public if she doesnt want to learn how to speak good english.

      yes……she sounds funny…..incoherent….but is our dear general buhari any better. ..I can’t understand anything he says……and Nigerians are ready to vote him for president…..yet here you all are making fun of the 1st lady. #hypocrites

      Actually he’s way better as he was able to express himself well above retardation level unlike our noble president and his wife. speaking good and correct English is quiet different from understanding the language. GEJ speak English but i don’t think he understand the language fully.

      MOST OF THE OVER-COLONISED FOOLS LAUGHING AT HER [because her parents sent her to schools they could afford where SHE LEARNT to speak as she does] HAVE MOTHERS OR GRANDMOTHERS WHO SPEAK IN A SIMILAR MANNER: Hypocrites!!!


      Perhaps, it may take one more generation for the slow ones to realise that English language is merely a lingua franca for non-native speakers… Whether you speak it well or not is a function of your educational background – and therefore not a laughing matter… Put conversely, that you speak excellent English ”no be property”*

      WHAT IS BY FAR MORE DISTURBING & DISGRACEFUL IN OUR COUNTRY IS THAT SOME LOST SOULS DO NOT KNOW HOW TO speak and spell their native language excellently – with idioms and proverbs to boot*** I find that those ignorant ones [who have been well and truly colonised] are the ones that laugh the loudest!

      Really? But she is supposed to be a UNIVERSITY GRADUATE for crying out loud? Until some months ago, she was a PERMANENT SECRETARY in the Bayelsa State Civil Service.

      She is the wife of the president of the most populous black nation on earth, Nigerians are known to speak eloquently….peoples mothers and grandmothers aren’t wives of president and as such don’t need to speak publicly for the world to listen…. my issue is when the young generation speaks so low like this then we probably cant have good leaders we would always present a lack of leadership person like Jonathan. #SHAME

    so how did we get here ?? my issue isn’t the grammatical blunder, we should be used to that by now but the fact that the whole speech is incomprehensible, you can’t just make sense of it, i found myself trying really hard to understand the concept she was trying to sell. tell me those jeers were not at GEJ….in Bayelsa?!

  10. Joe

    February 9, 2015 at 12:32 pm

    All because of politics?? I think she should be prep before giving public speeches it will help though

    ..i am very certain stubbornness is embedded in this woman and hardly takes advice even from her husband. A courteous woman would heed to advice or at least be ashamed from the aftermath of the drama, ” there’s God ooooo” ..

    The bible had said it all, “iron sharpneth iron” . And i won’t be surprised if our economy and democracy keep dwindling if this is kind of iron that sharpens our President on a daily basis…There’s fire on the mountain oooo my Naija people…

    • To the simple minds

      February 9, 2015 at 10:51 pm


      If you went to University in Nigeria, you would have found that the quite a lot of the brightest students are usually those from very poor backgrounds who do not speak excellent English.

      You, who writes excellent ‘non-native speaker’ level English; did you graduate top of your class at Uni? I know you didn’t, cause the very bright ones already know that AN EXCELLENT ENGLISH SPEAKER IS NOT = TO AN INTELLECTUAL!!!

      If your parents were of the same social status as hers, and sent you to a primary school and secondary school similar to the ones she attended, you may have ended up speaking like her…

      If you have an open mind, you would not assess her short-comings from a place of condescension and odium; but rather look at it from a logical point of view!

      Incidentally, how well does/did you grandmother or great-grand mother speak English?… That’s a few degrees of separation*

    • Ready

      February 9, 2015 at 11:34 pm

      Calm your bouncing tittays and stop creating new names to rebut truths on the internet. Evidently, her grammar isn’t the only problem here, it’s her inability to construct a coherent train (pun intended) of thought. I would like to request that you calmly point us to a decent speech or intelligent initiative that she has made, rather than going on this your campaign of calumny where you talk about people’s grandmothers.

    If Hillary can do it why not Mama Peace. She would have had an awesome pedigree by then:
    – a distinguished civil service career
    – distinguished permanent secretary
    – the best First Lady we have ever had and the longest serving May 2010 – May 2019
    – future foreign affairs minister June 2015 – June 2018

    At least we will never be sick if she becomes president because “laughter is the best medicine”!

    On a more serious note: when Bill Clinton was running for president he said that if elected America was going to get “two for the price of one” – meaning himself and Hillary. With GEJ and Mama Peace we definitely got 3/4 (three quarters) for the price of one.

      Next time, don’t talk about mothers you know not about…
      Patience is the first lady, and should be responsible for all Nigerians… I personally, cant have this lady responsible for me. I cant be proud of her, not in Nigeria or outside.

    You also have to remember how they met; Jonathan was her lecturer. So we are experiencing the product of his tutelage right there.

After a while, it stops being funny and borders on cyber bullying and misogyny the way we keep making fun of her. Nigerians voted her husband and alas she is his wife. We need to campaign for him to send her to polishing school or something

    GEJ will get lots of votes from women because he is a modern man who believes women should be heard.
    Beside every successful man should be his wife.
    If you are one of those men who lock their wives up, please stop! This is the 21st century.

    If APC cares so much about English language they should not have picked Buhari. He is supposed to be the president for heaven’s sake.

    If she didn’t attend good schools as some claim in their comments, then, must she talk. For how long will the woman continue to embarrass Nigerians.?? The husband, Jonathan could not even call her to order. Her attitude speaks volume about our President. .

    February 10, 2015 at 2:46 pm

    I see no reason why Nigerian pick on this woman. I think your problem is that you see alot of Nigerian movies. Everyone must no be perfect, you should know that. And Jonathan cannot divorce her because of her diction.
    Most of the people that crucify this woman cannot engage in reasonable discussion that will be geared towards national development. At times I even query myself about the intelligence of those that criticize this woman; is it not all these guys I see that update nonsense in social media? Please spare me that nonsense.
    If you like, speak standardized queen’s English, if you are not productive and lack in the characters of visual projections…you will end up being a/an **********

      A first lady is the wife of the president, the woman beside the throne not a the power that made the throne and protects the throne. The couple is odd. The husband seem not able to function without being propelled, so she has to be constantly visible and vocal. Poor Nigeria.
