Nigerians on social media have reacted to a video of the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, struggling to read a speech at an event in Kano.
In the viral video, the IG, who visited Kano on Monday to commission the Police Technical Intelligence unit in the State stammered severally as he struggled to pronounce his words.
In reaction to the video, Nigerians took to social media to express their opinion on the speech.
Read reactions below:
@allibaloo, ”There’s no way the IGP will be struggling to pronounce “ transmission “ and then he turns to another page and the same word confronted him “ transmission. The whole prepared speech can’t be about transmission now.”
@Swtch, ”Abeg which #IGP? The glorified illiterate that cannot read ordinary typescript handed over to him, even when the person that drafted it for him stood by reading out for him, he still couldn’t read out.”
@jacksonpbn, ”President has no WASCE, IGP cannot read, anti corruption adviser forged WAEC, Cabinet clueless, Cronies all thieves. Citizens aloof, uniformed. What a country!”
@ Emilin, ”Anyone remembers the Magu interview with Chamberlain of ChannelsTV? Compare with the IGP’s struggle to read his speech and see the kind of illiterates we have as leaders.”
@Chxta, ”Different kids have different needs, but here we only think of bright kids, and olodo. That mentality is what is propelling the derision to an IGP that is more likely dyslexic. Focus people. His real sin isn’t dyslexia, it’s insubordination to the National Assembly.”
@aminugamawa, ”If that video of IG of @PoliceNG is fake or doctored, I expected the police to immediately issue a statement clarifying the situation.They should even show us the real video, if that one was doctored. The video is all over the social media. It makes the IGP look bad & unprepared.”
How do you intend to effect the TRANSMISSION of this message to IGP Idris?
The @PoliceNG has the problem of transmission immediately Buhari concluded the transmission of a ComPol to IGP.
Afterwards no transmission in the transmission of Kidnappers transmission.

So APC people have quickly diagnosed IGP Idris with Dylexia but have been defending someone with Dementia for the past 3 years.

IGP Idris rumored dyslexic condition shouldn't be debated for long.
Conduct a medical test on him, if he passes RETAIN him, otherwise SACK him.
