What is Dyslexia?
Based on a definition by NHS.co.uk, it is a common learning difficulty that can cause problems with reading, writing and spelling. It’s a “specific learning difficulty”, which means it causes problems with certain abilities used for learning, such as reading and writing. Unlike a learning disability, intelligence isn’t affected.
A video of Ibrahim Idris, inspector-general of police (IGP), struggling to read a speech, has surfaced online.
In the trending video, Idris finds it difficult to pronounce the words, as he constantly repeats the words “I mean’ and ‘transmission”
Idris was said to have been caught in the “embarrassing” video tweeted by Voice of Liberty, on Monday, when he paid a visit to Kano, to commission the police technical intelligence unit in the state.
“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,” Idris said
After several attempts to get his speech right, the IGP, struggling with his paper, apologized 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.”
