Teaching Our Children In Our Indigenous Vocabularies – Emmanuel Odoemelam
The strategic thing the APC government led by Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu needs to do for Nigerians is to convert all STEM subjects from the English Language to Igbo, Hausa, Yoruba, Fulani, Nupe, Kanuri, Tiv, Idoma, Effik, Ibibio, etc, as the case may be, according to the language domiciled and localized in each geopolitical zone.
If we want total liberation and emancipation like Russia 🇷🇺 and China 🇨🇳, I see no reason that science 🔬 , Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics should be taught in English, a foreign language.
If the Good Book 📖 was converted to all indigenous languages in Nigeria 🇳🇬, for easy understanding and spread, our children should be schooled 🎓 in local languages for faster and more natural assimilation of what is been taught.
Our Federal Ministry of Education🎒 should take note of this urgent appeal from concerned Nigerians.
Research has shown 📺 that things taught in one’s mother tongue 😝 tend to make more meaning and proper comprehension and retention of what is been taught to the person 👭.
We humbly call on Tahir Mamman , the new Minister of Education to diligently look 👀 into the National anomaly of our teaching and learning pattern, which has robbed us of our identity as a people and has kept us bound from reaching our God-given potential as blacks.
This is sacrosanct and expedient, it is a national emergency and calls for action as soon as possible.
