FG Vows To Save Nigerian Languages From Extinction



The Federal Government has vowed to put necessary measures in place to save Nigerian languages from going into extinct.

Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu disclosed this during a workshop, tagged, “Enabling Writers: Bloom Software Training of Trainers” organised by the Association for the Development of Education in Africa (ADEA), supported by Global Book Alliance (GBA) and United States Agency for International Development (USAID).

He stated that the current administration is doing all it could to restore, promote and sustain reading and writing culture in Nigeria and to also encourage the teaching of the languages in schools across the country.

Adamu called on Nigerian authors to write in local language so as to help provide more books and materials in Nigerian languages.

He expressed the commitment of the federation government to provide effective, efficient and quality teaching and learning in schools, adding that all these cannot be achieved without relevant and sufficient books and other instructional materials.

The Minister, who was represented by the Director, Educational Planning Research and Development, Dr Chioma Nwadei, said this would help reactivate the interest of the Nigerian youth in the ability to read and write in their local languages.
