His motives seems genuine hence I see nothing wrong in his decision. We need to value and protect our cultures.
I know a couple wife is igbo and husband is Yoruba. Their kids can only speak English. Such a painful situation . So imagine such child trying to get a political seat in future how will be or she reach out to the grassroots.

For once, this Okoroawusa has done something commendable. He should extend it to the House of Assembly.

It makes a whole lot of sense. Keep the language alive. If anyone doesn't understand let them get an interpreter to translate whatever they say.

Is a good idea, other tribes don't speak English during their own function. I love the idea, we must promote igbo language.

Enter your comment... I don't have anything against this but the truth is that Okorocha and his APC demons are just wiping up sentiments to blindfold nigerians. I'm sure you are all happy about this, but what about the real issues affecting your lifes and future?

That situation, the kids may have to learn one native language. Father preferable.

Language, culture and traditions are part of what is negatively affected and if care is not taken, may go extinct.
It is one of the major identities of a nation.

Misplaced priorities

Makes sense. After all they are the custodians of culture.

Fab Mum said...

Kids from this type of homes /marriage learn the mothers native tongue seeing shes always with them. Unless they mother can speak the father's native tongue.

African leaders and the tyrannical/autocratic selves! Isn't English an official language in Nigeria? If you're interested in promoting a language/culture, why not ENCOURAGE them to speak the language NOT ban them from speaking English
