All over Nigeria and abroad, Nigerians speak pidgin to communicate with one another. The language is understood and spoken by the high and low in every community in Nigeria. Uptil now, government is yet to give any form of recognition to it. By now, this should bother us if we truly want a neutral lingua franca for Nigeria. Please see my write-up "From 2010 Wetin De?" on naijapals.com/oribhabor for this and other write-ups of mine.

Well, brother is quite unfortunate that i have not read that write up "wetin de?" you are talking about, but given the comment you made in your caption Naija pidgein, i am sorry to say that write up may not be pretty important. Are you saying amonsgt several problems we are facing at the moment Government should wast their time tackling issues like making pidgin english as a lingua franca? Brother, you may want to think again. Are in that respect demoting Nigeria or improving it. This does not enlighten the Nigerian citizens ok but weakens it, that does not mean to say english is what enlitghen's people but you cannot put it's place to pidgen. It would have made more sense if you recommend igbo, housa or yeruba in that case. That infact is not our problem pls
