Abia Teachers Demand Igbo Language Training

Abia State teachers have urged the state government to train them to use the Igbo language as a mode of instruction in primary schools. The teachers, who participated in a two-day capacity building, stressed that was difficult for them to teach in a language that the majority of them could barely write properly.

The event at the Umuola Central School brought teachers from five primary schools in the Aba North Local Government Area. The programme was held under the Early Child Learning Advancement Programme (E-CLAP) of Sterling One Foundation (SOF) of Sterling Bank Plc, which engaged the Civil Society Action Coalition on Education for All (CSACEFA).

At the end of the seminar, the stakeholders and participants reached a resolution which they documented in a 9-point communiqué. Some of the recommendations included the training and retraining of all primary school teachers in the use of Igbo) for teaching early-grade children. The group also recommended the training and retraining of primary school teachers in the use of the new techniques and technologies in teaching and learning.
