ABSTRACT
ABSTRACT
Several issues have shaped political discourse in Nigeria since her independence.
Speeches read from scripts and other texts as well as various media forums have been
major sources of data. Political interactions, dealing with spontaneous discourse/speech
events have hardly been subject of discourse. Recently one of the platforms that
transverse the Nigerian political sphere is the National Good Governance Tour
(NGGT) of Nigeria; this study therefore, explores language use in the tour and
ideologies transmitted, and the purpose with which language use in the tour serves. The
study adopts Critical Discourse Analysis (CDA), as its theoretical framework and
Hallidays’ SFL, to identify language and ideology in the political interactions. Data for
the study was sourced by downloads from the website of the federal ministry of
information, and live recordings as televised. The discourse interactions were played
over, listened to, and transcribed verbatim as uttered for the purpose of this study.
Findings indicate that the interactions sought to counter the dominant apathetic
ideology of most Nigerians with that of optimism through pungent and direct
spontaneous spoken discourse. It was established also that CDA can explore the
relationship between language and ideology of political interactions.
Key words: Political Interaction, Ideology, CDA, SFL,
