Introduce the teachings of Edo language in our schools – BTC

The need for Edo State Government and relevant establishments to revisit the issue of implementing the teaching and learning of Edo Language in Schools in the state has been emphasised.

In a statement, Chief Osayomwanbo Osemwengie Ero, the Edobayokhae of Benin and Chairman, BTC Edo Language Committee expressed concern that despite the intervention of Governor Adams Oshiomhole on the introduction of teaching Edo Language in Schools, the Ministry of Education and teachers are yet to show interest on the issue.

Chief Ero pointed out that children, who speak their mother tongue are known to be more proficient in other foreign languages and can communicate better.
He recount how the Edo language committee set6 up by the Oba of Benin and how the Benin Traditional Council in a seminar in 2006 worked on a modular construction on Edo Language syllabuses for Primary one to six, Junior Secondary School and Senior Secondary School under the auspices of Edo State Ministry of Education and some experts from the National Education Research Council, Abuja.

According to the statement, implementation of the teaching and learning of Edo language will improve the standard of education and give solid cultural foundation to the Edo Child.

Chief Ero pointed out that it is the duty of the Ministry of Education and teachers to implement the teaching and learning of Edo language in line with the pronouncement of the Comrade Governor

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
