UNESCO: Igbo Language Will be Extinct by 2025–Mbanu ! Igbo si Mba!

Many of us already heard the bad news, a prediction by United Nations Agency, that Igbo language would be extinct by 2025. What are we Igbos going to do about it? Are we going to fold our hands and watch this prediction come through? You and I should be guilty of not doing what we should do to preserve this beautiful Igbo language we inherited from our fore fathers and mothers. We are banding together to initiate measures and strategies to stop our language from becoming another Dinosaur!

The abstract of a new Article by Ani Kelechi Johnmary stated:

The world is increasingly recording high cases of endangered languages. Endangered language is a language that is at risk of falling out of use as its speakers die out or shift to speaking another language. Igbo language is falling out of the communication choice of many Igbo people. The paper shows how the gradually society exhibits social violence against their language at home, school, church, as by the government and through their dialect as well as other multidimensional ways. It well calls for the factoring and promotion of Igbo language based NGOs, public service broadcasting and transformative government policy in other to attain sustainable Igbo language transformation.

Yes the author of this new article stated that we Igbos are exhibiting social violence against our own language. How many times has someone spoken Igbo to you and you responded in English? That is an example of social violence against Igbo language. We as Igbos have come together to find solutions to this serious problem. ICOTTH-USA and Africa Business World are sponsoring a World-wide Igbo Cultural Festival August 5-7th. As part of this International Igbo Cultural Festival, there would be Igbo language Workshops and Speakers on ways to reverse the decline of usage of Igbo Language. Papers will be presented discussing ways and strategies to address this serious problem identified by UNESCO. Mark your calendar. If the plight of our Igbo language touches you, plan to be a part of this festival. There will be traditional dances, masquerades, Hollywood and Nollywood stars, ICOTT-USA Iri-Ji Cultural Event, Gala Night and Banquet and more!
