Former Enugu Governor, Chime, Laments Over The Growing Popularity Of Pidgin English

A former Governor of Enugu State in Nigeria, Sullivan Chime, has decried the popularity of Pidgin and Broken English among youths in the country.

According to him, Pidgin English widely adopted is fast replacing good English “and our children are greatly seduced by it.

“It is disheartening to know that even so- called graduates are unable to speak good English. They take to Pidgin English and corrupt our younger ones with it.

“Many Nigerian musicians cannot sing good songs in good English, even the new generation radio stations use funny terms or slangs in some of their programmes.”

The former governor said all hands must be on deck to filter Pidgin English away from the lips of youths so as not to wreak unfathomable havoc in the future.
