The video which is making the rounds online, shows the police chief struggling to read his speech at the official commissioning of the Force Technical Intelligence Unit, in Kano state.
He struggled repeatedly with the words “Transmission,” and “I mean.”
The IG was captured on camera reading his speech saying; “I mean, transmission, I mean effort, that the transmission cooperation to transmission, I mean transmission to have effect, ehm, apprehend, I mean, apprehensive towards the recommendation, recommended formation effective and effect, I mean, apprehensive at the transmission of…and transmission and transmission for the effective in the police command.”
After several attempts to get his speech right, the IG, struggling with his paper, apologised to his audience. “Sorry, I’m sorry please,” he said.
However, Ibrahim’s struggle did not end there. A man in suit joins him to help hold down his script, and even helped with the pronunciation of the words. But this didn’t make the reading any better for the IGP.
“All effective the transmission, other transmission, I can state without contradiction that I have commissioned what?,” he continued.
“Over transmission of, over transmission of, over all kidnapping, armed robbery and other heinous crimes, I mean, ehm, commission transmission, recommendation transmission.”
