I Encourage My Children To Children To Speak Like Me -Patrick Obahiagbon



Patrick Obahiagbon in a recent chat interview with Punch  says he would love his children to speak like him,  especially his youngest daughter. Patrick disclosed this to Punch, lol.

 He said; “I have said it for the umpteenth time that I have never advertently set out to mystify my audience with what you have referred to as esoteric words and I neither studied Latin. .

 “The truth is that extensive reading is my hobbyhorse and these words and phrases become part of my vocabulary repertoire to use your words. Of course, I have equally posited elsewhere that the dictionary for me is a vade mecum.

 “It bears reiteration that my family is already used to my idiolect and I am encouraging my kids along that path but of course you know these things cannot be decreed.

I have endeavoured to encourage my children to try and cultivate the gift of the gab especially my young daughter who is exuding all the qualities of a scholar in her formative years and my pleasure will be boundless if one of them can be so motivated.”
