A speech on multilingual education- a necessary tool for educational transformation in Nigeria By Prof Chinwe Veronica Anunobi

The adoption of multilingual education in Nigeria is a crucial step towards preserving indigenous languages from going into extinction, encouraging critical thinking from the Nigerian indigenous environment, technological development that is home based and providing a new generation with Nigerian multilingual background. The preservation of these languages will ensure the promotion of cultural diversity, unity, and national development. The government should follow through on the implementation of this policy by providing the necessary instructional materials and qualified teachers to make it a success. Furthermore, individuals, communities, and organizations should also play their part in promoting and preserving their indigenous languages for posterity.
