An Educationist, Mrs Adebimpe Olalekan, has actually contacted federal governments at all levels to make native languages required in schools.

Olalekan made the call in an interview with newsmen in Ilorin on Friday.

She stated that regional languages had a method of restoring and securing the culture and cultural worths of any society.

” By regional language, I indicate native language or dialect, not simply the 3 significant languages are spoken in Nigeria.

” Every language deserves providing unique attention due to the fact that each language or dialect becomes part of the abundant and varied Nigerian culture.

” Let every kid have access to finding out the dialect in school,” she stated.

According to Olalekan, some trainees will do much better with native languages than English.

She prompted other state federal governments to imitate the Yobe State Federal government by mentor and making the native languages required in schools.

” It might not be the language of direction however it must remain in the curriculum and made an obligatory topic for trainees.

” Our language needs to not be optional. It is as essential to the country as the English language.

” It is our identity,” Olalekan stated.
