    Nigeria has declared a policy to encourage the teaching of local languages to primary school students rather than English. The first six years of primary school, learning will be conducted in mother language under the new policy.

    Nigeria’s Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, announced that the National Language Policy, a new framework, has been approved for implementation.

    Nigeria’s official language is English, which is also the primary language at all educational institutions.The education minister asserts that students “learn far better” when instructed in their native tongue.

    The fact that Nigerians speak more than 600 different languages presents the biggest difficulty.

    The education minister admitted that it would be difficult to put the new policy into practice since it would “take a lot of work to design materials to educate and get the teachers.”
