Reno Omokri, former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan has advised Africans to take pride in speaking their native languages instead of trying to speak perfect Queen’s English.
He shared the advice via his official Twitter account, where he stated that Africans should speak both English and their native languages.
The US-based pastor also stated that copying the Queen’s English doesn’t automatically make an African to become English.
“Dear African, Speak English, but also speak your native language. Speaking Queens English doesn’t make an Africa either English or the Queen. “It just makes you a very good copy of the original. Why not be a very good original of your own language?”
