Igbo linguist, Ogbonnaya Okoro begins translation of physics textbook into Igbo language
Ogbonnaya Mark Okoro, a former translator for the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) Igbo Service and author of numerous novels on Igbo culture, has announced that by 2024, he will be done translating modern physics textbook into Igbo language.
He said this in a post on his official X handle.
According to Ogbonnaya, he doesn’t care if the work will be valued now but he is simply looking at the future.
The prolific linguistic added that all his works will be valued in the future when the people will decide to think back home.
Ogbonnaya speaking further on the project said, There are many things I do in secret, only time will reveal and this is one of them.
“I should be getting my Physics textbook done by 2024 in Igbo Language. I have started earlier. After that, we move unto other STEM courses.
“I don’t care if it will be valued now, but I see the future. All my works will be valued in the future when our people will decide to think back home.”
