Lagos PDP Kicks Against Yoruba Language Preservation And Promotion Law 2018 by Odingo1: 12:03am On Feb 13
By Dapo Akinrefon Lagos — THE Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Lagos State has kicked against the enforcement of the Yoruba language preservation and promotion law 2018, calling on Governor Akinwumi Ambode to suspend the law.

Lagos State PDP members In a statement by its Publicity Secretary, Mr Taofik Gani, the party argued that the bill recently signed into law by the Governor was an early misapplication and revenue coloration in bad faith.

The party stated that the lack of due considerations by the Lagos House of Assembly “in making and passing the bill gives one strong doubts on the competence of the house to deliver flawless legislation.”

It accused the state government of hastily directing all its tertiary institutions and other schools to demand credit pass in Yoruba language before any applicant could be qualified for admission.

“To the PDP, this is a clear indication that the law is more interested in revenue, thus tainted and in bad faith,” the party stated. According to the party “Frankly speaking the law was not brilliantly considered and its hasty applications make it laughable.

To us in PDP and a lot of other groups, the law is ethnocentric and direct attack on all non Yoruba residents in the state. It has also usurped the inherent powers of the Senate in the various institutions to determine their qualifications for entry. Imagine an Igbo or Hausa with 9 distinctions but a pass in Yoruba language.

Such will be denied admission into our schools. Whereas by the combined provisions of Sections: 17(2c) (3a) and 18 (1) of the 1999 Constitution of the FRN (as amended), all citizens should have equal rights and fair opportunities to education in any part of the country.”

Indeed, this vindictive law will eventually be applicable to persons employed or seeking employments in the state establishments” “We will notwithstanding advise Governor Ambode to get careful with bills emanating from and passed by the Lagos State House of Assembly to save Lagosians and the state from further embarrassment.”

The PDP guy is a hopeless joker. angry He did not complain when toll gate charges were increased. Now he is wailing about the introduction of Yoruba language, as a criteria for admission into state-owned schools. Why didn't his party PDP make noise when Anambra and Imo passed similar laws, to make Igbo compulsory in primary and secondary schools within their region? Or when Igbo language was incorporated into General Studies courses in state-owned tertiary institutions in Anambra? Yeye man!

I think it is fair to give total freedom of choice to students of higher institutions who are not indigenes of the state to either learn the indigenous languages or not.

The Op and the PDP are wasting their time. Igbos themselves pioneered this move in the SE long before Lagos did and we didn't hear kpim. Those that want to be exempted should stop making noise and just simply opt for Lagos federal unis instead. It is not by force to attend Lagos state owned schools.

The law is binding, not conflicting with constitution. If so concerned, file a case at Igbosere Magistrate Court

Nice one

What nonsense

is Lagos not part of Nigeria again


If they allow this rubbish bill; very soon other states will follow suit


If Yorubas are feeling insecured about Lagos; let them push for referendum so we can all agree they own Lagos. If not for now Lagos belong to every bleeping Nigerian and even Fulani and aboki niger - rians grin


This bill is an insult to all other tribes FFS



This is why Nigeria will hardpy progess

Few are patriotic whereas almost everybody is tribalistlc and care only about their tribe.


I have come to realize almost every Yoruba sees Lagos as their one and only birthright ; forgetting that Lagos is collective work of every tribe especially Niger Delta money


Lagos was once the capital of naija
What if gbagi or Hausa do same in Abuja cheesy


See as Yoruba Boyz just they quote me anyhow


Kiss the bloody truth u pained bitch ass demons

Then they(PDP) should understand they would NEVER win Lagos. never! The heritage of Lagos is not a free for all. We have our Heritage and our unique indigenous identity - which is Yoruba and we must preserve it just like everyone else preserve theirs. For this singular action of the PDP I would never ever vote PDP in Lagos, even for local govt chairman, irrespective of who their candidate is. Never!

That law is quite shallow and fascist in nature so should be suspended....It will only set a precedence for more unhealthy tribalism and nepotism across the country..Nigerians need to bond more not to be distanced further ...Besides if Lagos doesn't require proficiency in Yoruba to collect taxes from me why should they when I want to access tertiary education in the state ..makes no sense
