2018 Politics In Nigeria: Where Is Gigantic-Words-User Patrick Obahiagbon?

In Nigeria, her citizens cannot deny this: the high-potential under-developed country is home to many hilarious men who somehow find their way into political seats of power. From Senator Ademola Adeleke, the dancing, twerking overweight senator who was recently caught on video, lying flat on the floor, shaking and twerking his buttocks, in public; to Senator Dino Melaye who also loves to dance publicly, create a mockery of poverty and flaunt his ill-gotten political wealth publicly. Well, there’s also Patrick Obahiagbon whom many Nigerians know as the “High-waist-trousers” politician or as the “Big Grammar” man. Patrick is a political leader in Nigeria, formerly elected to the House of Representatives where he was until 2011 after which he served as Chief of Staff to Governor of Edo State of Nigeria, Adams Oshiomhole, who held that office until 2015. Let’s review a few of Patrick Obahiagbon’s biggest grammar over the years:


He once said, quotted:

“I am maniacally bewildered, overgassted and flabberwhelmed at the paraplegic crinkum crankum that characterised the Glo CAF awards culminating in an odoriferous saga cum gargantuan gaga! The jiggery pokery of CAF in crowning Yaya Toure instead of our very own prodigy John Obi Mikel is a veritable bugaboo that must be pooh-poohed by all compos mentis homo sapiens! The perfidy and Mendacity of all the apparatchic of sports suzerainty is not only repugnant but also insalubrious! I said to my self: What an anathematous disdain of the citizenry! What a deprecable descent from the sublime to the ridiculous! Who will curb the odoriferous excesses of this machavellian and mephistophelean cabal in the Confederation? With this state of affairs, i dare say that African football is swimming in a pestilential aqua with a disastrious terminus ad quem inherently laden with avoidable cataracts, ice bergs and oxbow Lakes. It is sardonic and lugubrious!!!”

Another one, quotted:

“A celebration of democracy or a deprecable apotheosis of an hemorrhaging plutocracy, cascading into a mobocracy with all the ossifying proclivities of a kakistocracy? With our “democracy” enveloped in a paraplegic crinkum-crankum, we must all rise up to bring to focal hiceps and biceps, Nigeria’s “Pluto-mobo-kakistocracy”…. Certainly not democracy!”


Surely, Nigeria is missing Patrick Obahiagbon’s entertainment-of-big-grammar, thus begs the question, Where is he? Since Governor Oshiomhole of Edo State left office in 2015, not much has been heard from Patrick Obahiagbon. He does not currently hold an official political seat but in 2018, he appeared on Channels TV’s “Politics Today and contributed his voice to the current state of the country’s economy: “It is certainly not Eureka yet. But, the truth of the matter is that, given where we are coming from, this government has tried. We were in the cause of economic comatose and from the quagmire of recession, the government of President Muhammadu Buhari has been able to remove the economy from the jugulars of recession and has breathed vital life into Nigeria’s economy.”
