Lagos House Of Assembly Passes Yoruba Language Bill Into Law by sarrki(m): 5:22am On Oct 20, 2017
The Lagos State House of Assembly on Thursday passed the bill which makes the teaching of Yoruba language compulsory in schools in the state into law.



The passage of the bill was sequel to the bill successfully scaling through the third reading on the floor of the House.

The bill, among others, makes the teaching of Yoruba language compulsory in all schools in the state, both in private and public schools, by including it as a core subject at all levels.

State-owned tertiary institutions are also mandated by it to incorporate the use of the language as a course unit into their General Nigeria Studies (GNS).

The bill indicates a fine of N500,000 for a corporate offender while any shool in the state which fails to comply with the law faces closure and a fine of N250,000.



The bill was finally passed on Thursday with the Speaker of the House, Rt. Hon. Mudashiru Obasa, ordering the Clerk of the House, Mr Azeez Sanni, to send a clean draft copy of the bill to the state Governor, Mr Akinwunmi Ambode for his assent.

Some problems will arise here though.
1. Insufficient teachers
2. Doesn't this cause some inconsistency with WAEC which gives stidents a chance to choose? Perhaps they intend to make it compulsory in class but when applying for WAEC, students can drop it but it will increase the workload of students
3. In Unis, it should not carry any unit but it must be passed.

My thoughts anyway

The foolishness of these internet rats continues.

I am yet to see an Easterner that is anti-integration. They have always been known to be masters in the language of the native populations. So what is the difference?

It is mostly Muslims that oppose integration.

It's very entertaining albeit exciting to say the least, the subtle move with which the new generation of Yoruba leaders are tightening their grips over Lagos.

The era of mumu political correctness is over, of recent we've seen the statue of Chief Awolowo commissioned, the acceptance of Lagos into Odua Group, and now the Yoruba Language Bill.

For those of you that'll convulse over these news accept my humble condolences, it appears that the Yorubas have taken over the 'No Man's Land'.

Kudos to the Assembly and state government.
This help to reinforce the state grip by the Yoruba and help solve the problem of no man's land syndrome. In addition, with this Bill fully complied with, it will be irrational and stupid for any body to ask the true owner of the land.
