Ojukwu Centre advocates for compulsory learning of Igbo language

The Ikemba Ojukwu Centre has advanced plans to advocate compulsory learning of Igbo language at its forthcoming conference next month in Owerri, Imo State, reports ITRealms.
The Centre, ITRealms gathered has on top of its agenda, the strategy for a private member bill to be sent to Houses of Assembly in the South Eastern part of the country aimed at making the teaching of Igbo language compulsory in all schools in Igboland.
ITRealms also gathered, the Houses of Assembly are to conduct their sessions in Igbo language at least thrice a week.
The Ikemba Ojukwu Centre, Owerri, further lamented that Igbos who were on the commanding heights of the military, politics, academia and commerce before Nigeria’s independence were now at the lowest rung in the nation’s socio-political and economic development.
The Director-General of the centre, Dr. Samfo Nwankwo, at another confab in Umuahia, Abia State, Thursday pointed out that Igbo people are suffering cultural identity crisis, as the Igbo language was on the verge of extinction.
Nwankwo decried that after a painful analysis of what has been the lot of the Igbo recently, the centre, decided to convoke an emergency conference, which involved all prominent Igbos and groups, to know where the problem arose and why.
