Yoruba World Centre  supports Nigerian Government on new education policy

The International Centre for Yoruba Arts and Culture (Yoruba World Centre) has pledged to support the Nigerian Government on its new education policy, of approving use of mother tongue as medium of instruction in primary school levels.
Penpushing reports that, the Centre gave the assurance  in a letter of congratulations written to the Minister of Eduction, Alhaji Adamu Adamu, which was personally signed by the Coordinator, Ogbeni Alao Adedayo.
The Yoruba World Center(YWC) said it upheld the scaling through of this proposal as one big achievement that would be recorded for the tenure of the current Minister, pleading that all should come together to see to the workability of the policy.
Penpushing further reports that, it is recalled that on Wednesday, the Federal Executive Council, at its meeting presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari in Abuja, approved a new language policy which now makes mother tongue a compulsory medium of instruction from primary classes 1 to 6.
 The Yoruba World Centre(YWC), in its first reaction to this, maintained that, this is time for us to celebrate, because Nigeria now follows the ways of many developed nations.
“Using mother tongue for instructions at the early stage of the children has helped many nations of the world to develop, and it is one of the obstacles facing our education sector in Nigeria as pupils taught with foreign languages grow to fall in love with foreign cultures and ideas, abandoning anything indigenous, including the love for their own community and country”, the letter reads.
“Here at the Yoruba World Centre, we are very sure the Federal Government and Nigerians shall reap bountifully from this new policy. This is why we are supporting the policy with all our resources, by bringing all stakeholders together to ensure we all give a helping hand that will facilitate an all-round success for the implementation of the policy”
