Former governorship candidate of Progressive Peoples Alliance, PPA, in Anambra, Mr Godwin Ezeemo, has tasked the Igbo to save their language and culture from extinction. Vanguard News reported.
He made the announcement at the Ndi Igbo Cultural Festival 2016 celebration in Asaba, a festival organized by the Igbo Cultural Forum in Asaba, Delta State.
"Any race that abandons her language for other languages already has a major challenge. We must learn to promote our language, use it to instruct our children and to impact any form of technology using the Igbo language, like India, China, among others.
We must not be ashamed of our culture"
Ezeemo urged the Igbo to come together in order to surmount any perceived obstacle and challenge facing them as a people.
The festival themed "Igbo Bu Ofu" (the Igbos are one), is the first festival aimed at uniting the Igbo race and promoting their culture in line with what is obtainable world wide.
