If you didn't want to be lumped in with the rest of the e-tribal warriors on Nairaland, you would couch your words better. I can only go by what you put down, as well as your choice of words.

Secondly, given that it is a mandatory requirement for admission and may disadvantage non-lagosians who are unable to be sufficiently skilled in the language, it may well be far from 'harmless'.

Guy, dem send you? shocked What da heck is your problem? It is not my headache, if you choose to view everything from a tribalistic lens. Your problem is that you are getting worked up by a law that was passed in Lagos state, to cover its state-owned institutions. There is no need for you to get bothered, as there are federal universities where such laws do not apply. So non-Lagosians or non-Yorubas have a choice! There are even several Yoruba people I have met, who cannot write or read their language properly, talk less of getting a credit pass in it. So why are you belly-aching over this? shocked And there are a multitude of alternatives to choose from. You had better watch your words, so that you are not labelled as a myopic, petty, ethnocentric toad. Couch your words better.

I’ll explain just one more time. In Canada as a country unlike in Nigeria as a country where English is SOLELY the National Language The Lingua Franca is the English/French Languages which is why Canadian National Inscriptions are rendered in both languages. Now, the fact that the lingua Franca in Canada is as stated would not be reason to insist that English be spoken in Quebec! That is true Federalism! A visit to some places in America will not be liveable for a person who can’t do espanol! The fact that English Language is lingua Franca in Nigeria is no reason why a Federating State cannot demand that folks who wish to be educated or domiciled there must learn the language indigenous to that federating unit. This is more so that communication In English is not barred.
Gbam!! You talk am well! May you live long.... cool

Chi Onwurah is the MP for Newcastle Constituency which is 88% white.

Chuka Umunna is the MP for Streatham Constituency which is 58.2% white.

Fiona Onasanya is the MP for Peterborough Constituency which is 70.9% white.

Kate Badenoch is the MP for Edmonton Constituency which is 64.7% white.

Indirectly it supports my original point, you may not need ethnic majority to get elected to political position in a democracy. I envisage an Igbo governor elect for Lagos State, after all it's not by ethnicity as pointed out by friend;
Oh, so why were you chanting gleefully much earlier, that those Yoruba people would soon be in the minority, within Lagos state? Were you not the one that made these comments below? Why did you change your mind? Was it because someone debunked your fake stories earlier?

ositadima1:
Pls don't play dumb with me, I wrote this;

"They were elected by their constituencies where black are majority."
ositadima1:
Majority will always carry the vote, last year a total of seven Nigerians were elected into the UK parliament. They were elected by their constituencies where black are majority. If the present influx of other tribes continue, in the not so distant future the Yorubas will be outnumbered within Lagos, what do you think will happen then? Again, I don't care, just proving a point.
ositadima1:
No law is final, it can be appealed.

Thank God, you agree you don't have more claim over Lagos than I have. Yourobas may influence the happenings in Lagos today, just because they are majority, it may be different tomorrow.

Is that his only problem? He should not worry, we have met the requirements already. Imagine me being Hausa girl from the north and I have c4 in Yoruba. After all, I don't understand Yoruba deeply. If that's the criteria for admission, I don hammer be that na

In a State like Rivers with multiple languages, they should give candidates the option of picking one (out of the 3 top languages) in their State




valentineuwakwe:
welcome development as long as no federal institution is included....we are full of copy copy and trying to politicize a policy, soon I see most states following suites.....what will a state like rivers with many tribes do in this case, will they allow multiple teaching of various languages......ogoni, ikwerre, ekpeye, ogba, Kalahari, etc flood schools curriculum...time will tell

All candidates seeking admission into all tertiary institutions in Lagos State must henceforth possess credit in Yoruba Language, the state Yoruba Language Preservation and Preservation Law has said.

The law, which became effective last Thursday, would now make compulsory for all primary and secondary schools – private or public – in the state to include teaching of Yoruba Language as a core subject at all levels.

The state Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, had formally signed a bill into law “to provide for the preservation and promotion of the use of Yoruba Language and for connected purposes,” thereby making it the first state to enact law seeking to preserve and promote its indigenous language.

He signed the law alongside the Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Mr. Adeniji Kazeem, Commissioner for Energy and Mineral Resources, Mr. Olawale Oluwo, his Information and Strategy counterpart, Mr. Kehinde Bamigbetan and the Commissioner for Finance, Mr. Akinyemi Ashade, among others.

He equally signed six other bills into laws: the Amended Land Use Charge bill, School of Nursing bill, Cooperative College bill, Cancer Research Institute bill, Amended Customary Court bill and the State Electric Power Reform Law on the same day.

However, the Yoruba Language Preservation and Promotion law provides that all the laws in the state “will be translated into Yoruba Language. Moreso, all state-owned tertiary institutions are to incorporate the use of Yoruba Language in the General Studies (GNS) courses.

“The use of Yoruba language shall be an acceptable means of communication between individuals, establishment, corporate entities and government in the state if so desired by the concerned. It shall not be an offence for a person to speak Yoruba language by the state government,” the law reads in part.

Specifically, the law stated that any school in Lagos State that “fails to comply with the provisions of Section 2 commits an offence and is liable on first violation to issuance of warning and on subsequent violation be closed down and also pay a fine of N500,000.”

After the governor approved the legislation, Bamigbetan explained the socio-cultural value of the Yoruba Language Preservation and Promotion Law, 2018, which according to him, is the first of its kind in Nigeria.

With the new law, Bamigbetan said Yoruba language “has become mandatory for all candidates seeking admission into our tertiary institutions. Yoruba will now become a major requirement to engage in normal business communication in Lagos State.

“This is a clear and conscious commitment to the position which Lagos State prides Yoruba language as the cultural vehicle for us to be able to articulate our position and it also shows that Lagos has further recognised the importance of language as a vehicle for development.”

He said anyone seeking admission into the Lagos State University, Lagos State Polytechnic, Michael Otedola College of Primary Education, Adeniran Ogunsanya College of Education, Lagos State School of Nursing and Lagos State College of Health Technology, among others must have credit in Yoruba language.
