Every good minded and
genuine Igbo person who can
make it to London should
attend the event as contained
in the attached flyer above to
celebrate this unique
achievement.
After years of relentless
campaign that would have
seen mere mortals throw in the
towel, Mrs Hope Ify Ofomata
and Vincent Onwukanjo of the
Igbo Language Campaign
Committee have done what
seemed impossible by the
standards of Igbos in the
diaspora, by doggedly fighting
to get the two greatest
institutions in academia to
accept Igbo language as a
course. This in effect means
that Igbo language has now
joined a distinguished list of
languages to make into the
Oxford/Cambridge Exam Board.
This would also act as a catalyst
for Igbo language to be
strengthened within families,
some of whom are ashamed of
interacting with their children
in Igbo. With this development
the fear that Igbo language will
become extinct in 75 years may
prove to be just another
pessimistic prediction.

It will be quite interesting, when an Igbo Briton will come to teach the language to an Igbo Nigerian.

Or maybe by the, there won't be any Igbo Nigerian but Igbo Biafrans!
