As part of measures to promote and project the Igbo Language and cultureAnambra State government has concluded plans to commence academic activities at the Ogbaru School of Igbo LanguageGovernor Peter Obi, who disclosed this at an interactive session with Igbo indigenes in Lagos State at the Ndigbo Secretariat, Victoria Island, said the state has made the language a compulsory subject in its primary and secondary schools, adding that candidates that lacked credit in Igbo Language and culture would not be employed in the state civil service from 2015.
EXCELLENT....You see this is the type of news wey me i dey like to hear. And I believe this is happening at the right time too, cos these days, its hard for our generation to even speak igbo for up to 2 minutes without including an english word. This is unlike Hausa and yoruba languages. Therefore I'm very happy about this project......Good job Uncle Peter. YOU ARE A FREAKING GENIUS :)
