US - Based Group Moves To Save Edo Language From Extinction



Eten n'ighan,
Ma ye owa, ma vbe ye egbe eheneden re.  IYARE!
I am glad to join my other brothers and sisters in informing you that our scholarship award program was highly appreciated and many more are expected to participate in supporting this years program financially.
I cannot emphasize how much the need to focus on our language promotion and development was emphasized both my Omo N'Oba N'Edo, our Palace Chiefs as well as the Academia's in our homeland.
I was personally very strict in my home by enforcing the speaking only in Edo Language during my stay.
The recipients of the awards were very grateful and diligently addressed the house in Edo Language.  Their picture can be seen in the attached January 01, 2011 Observer publication.
Many thanks to brother Victor Oronsaye who opened his house for this notable event and entertained us with the best feast ever topped with fresh palm wine and congo meat.
Eguae Tue Uwa hia,
Oba gha to Okpere. ISE!
Augustina Omosigho Iyare,
Publicity Secretary
Umagbae World Association.

These anti-Edo political organizations you folks went to join are the most anti-African - and Africans - in the world.

They're worse than anything; we obviously can't stop you though, even Ewuare II's manifest destiny lies in our own regional party.

We have egba Omo Oduduwa and so on, NPC, AG, the forerunner of them all NCNC and then now these cancers of today.

Stay "with them", but register for your most important election first: your local election, register Edo Political Front, and if you don't, vote the front.

No self respecting Edo will - in the future - find themselves the flag bearers and cheerleaders of foreign parties with indirect rule political and economic mandates, it just doesn't work.

No sane Edo person lives to "have the ear" of someone who doesn't have Edo at their heart.

The Supreme Court is the place to remove the frustration of these lethargic and "periodic" additions to the voting rolls; here - where I live - you can fill in the forms regarding changing your voter registration at the post office and other easy access places.

At the rate things are going we're going to find ourselves truly in decline as our populations suffer from simple things like protein deficiencies in children
