FG Approves Mother Tongue As Medium Of Instruction In Schools

The Federal Executive Council has approved a new National Language Policy making the various mother tongues compulsory medium of instruction from primary one to six.

Speaking to newsmen after the Federal Executive Council Meeting on Wednesday, the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, noted that the policy takes immediate effect.

According to him, the government is aware that its implementation will be difficult but it is necessary to promote the cultivation and use of all Nigerian languages.

 Adamu said even though the policy has officially taken effect, it can only be fully implemented when government develops instructional materials and qualified teachers are available, adding that the mother tongue to be used in each school will be the dominant language spoken by the community where it is located.
