Coronavirus: Senator sneezes during plenary, frightens colleagues [Video]


The Chairman, Senate Committee on Agriculture, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, frightened his colleagues with a dangerous sneeze during plenary on Tuesday.

The senator who did not wear his face mask properly before the involuntary action happened suddenly, quickly put the mask on immediately.

Senator Ibrahim Gobir from Sokoto State immediately stood up from his seat while other senators adjusted their face masks properly.

    Something is wrong with our leaders when one examines the way they think. If Maths and Sciences are taught in local languages, will the students write those subjects in local languages during common entrance and WASC examinations?

    Our reasoning and imitation is what as been our problem for ages. In China and India, they used their local languages to teach at the primary and secondary level. These two countries are producing best Engineers and doctors across the world. Teaching in local languages will not stop students from writing their notes and exams in English.

    It is a good idea, however, do we still have mother tongues in Nigeria? Many children start speaking English from the womb and can’t even understand their mother tongues as much as they do for English language. I hope starting to learn mother tongues will not be more difficult than learning English in the current Nigeria!

    Our youths can not get jobs because our leaders have not bothered to develop factories that can employ them. All the money for development is inside septic tanks and cemetery. The few available jobs are reserved for children of politians & other goverment functionaries. Whether we learn in mother tongue or father tongue it will not have any impact until we change our mode of thinking.

    You can now see that Nigeria leaders are drunkards and incompetent to even lead animals.

    Hi there, use your brain to think a little bit. Where words that correspond to these concepts exist in our local languages, there will be no need to invent them. Where there are no corresponding words, we can either invent new ones or use the ones already existing in western languages. No need to constantly reinvent the wheel. Most of the scientifc concepts used in English were not originally English words. They were Greek, roman, or Arabic words. So it does not matter if we borrow the same concepts ourselves. And what about inventing new concepts in our own languages. New words in our own languages and in other languages are being invented everyday to designate new things. Anyway, children will see no difference.
