Minister tells teachers to use local language No English

Minister tells teachers to use local language No English Education Minister, Prof Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang, has asked heads and teachers of basic schools to desist from the use of the English language as the sole medium of instruction in the classrooms. Heads of basic schools, she noted, introduced English Language too early, making it difficult to prepare students adequately for higher academic learning. She therefore urged teachers to use the local languages as medium of instruction in the classroom and gradually introduce the English language after the local language had been fully developed. “When we teach children in languages that they do not understand, teaching and learning do not take place and frustration begins to build,” she said in Accra last Monday at a ceremony to mark the beginning of the assessment teachers for the 2014 National Best Teachers Award. Shortlisted teachers are being interviewed by a panel of educationists and the best among them would be sele

An Open Letter To Edo State Governor, Comrade Adams A. Oshiomole. For The Sake Of Our Mother Tongue: A Cry For Help

MAR 4 AN OPEN LETTER TO EDO STATE GOVERNOR, COMRADE ADAMS A. OSHIOMOLE. FOR THE SAKE OF OUR MOTHER TONGUE: A CRY FOR HELP The Comrade Governor Sir, Edo Focus Parliament is a Pan-Edo interest group, formed primarily to propagate, promote and defend our age-long values of Unity; dignity of Labour; and unassailable cultural standing in the comity of states. We wish to respectfully draw Mr. Governor's attention to the rather apprehensive and pertinent observation made by UNESCO regarding the imminent extinction of several languages, including sadly,the Edo language from the face of the earth. Your Excellency will doubtless be deeply concerned about this uncheering news since you are a well grounded Edo man. Without much ado, as parents and Guardians, we are reliably informed that Edo language has been systemically obliterated from our public schools curriculum and we are alarmed that most stakeholders have shown little or no concern to this misnomer. We have th

Igbinedion University, Okada Inaugurating Centre For Edo Studies

Commendation to the Chancellor, Vice Chancellor and Senate of the Igbinedion University, Okada, for inaugurating Centre for Edo Studies The Interim Management Committee of Edo Forum of Patriots acknowledge with deep gratitude the establishment of a dedicated academic unit for the pursuit of research and teaching of Edo Language, history, relics and impacts of Edo culture generally on global civilization. This gesture (letter of appreciation) became expedient because of ourcommitment towards salvaging our language and cultural significance from the ravaging western imperialism. We respectfully appeal to well-meaning corporate bodies and public institutions to emulate this noble initiative, by supporting IUO's prolific vision, or floating complimentary programs of this nature. The need to have this unique intellectual arm in our 'Citadel of learning' as many as possible cannot be overemphasized, even as the scourge of cultural imperialism is prevalent in ou

'Eseosa is use when writing in English language while in Edo language is 'ẹseosa' i.e. revealing the difference of the vowel sound 'ẹ' 'o' and 'a' as the correct pronunciations of said name. ẹseosa as a name is mostly female name but often inter use for male child. It should be noted that ẹseosa could be an abbreviation from ẹseosasẹre (together as a noun); meaning God gift is the best. As African culture and traditions permits, names are giving to children base on various reasons ranging from, events, situation, condition, gratitude, mode of keeping history, wish and desire for their child etc. In above said name one could imagine, parents who give such name means to express gratitude to their imaginary supreme being, suppose provider of the said child for a nice and admirable son or daughter they have.
