We've been calling for this development for the 2 decades, no one is listening. Now, our similarly colonized sister, Ghana is boldly forging ahead of us. English will no longer be the means of imparting knowledge on its people.
Just to reminds us all, no people among the advanced countries of the world is using a foreign language for its official governance, not to talk of education of its citizens. An indigenous language or more of the majority of the nations citizenry is adopted as the national language for government and education activities.
But here in Nigeria, due to ethnic and regional sentiments among many other set backs, we have refused to allow common sense prevail over our national and collective interest.
No wonder, we keep registering monumental failure in our educational system at all levels. We have to wake up to this reality if really we are serious about becoming a nation to be reckoned with in this 21st century.
