FG makes Mother-Tongue instruction compulsory for primary 1-6


Federal Executive Council on Wednesday gave approval to a new National Language Policy.

The NLP makes Mother Tongue a compulsory medium of instruction from Primary 1 to 6.

The Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, revealed this while briefing State House correspondents shortly after this week’s Federal Executive Council meeting chaired by the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), at the Aso Rock Villa, Abuja.

Adamu further revealed that mother tongue would be used exclusively for the first six years of education after which it would be combined with English language from Junior Secondary School 1.

He noted that the FG was aware that implementing this section of the new NLP would be difficult.
