Nigerian government to begin teaching of science, mathematics in local languages

The Federal Government has revealed that primary and secondary school pupils across the country will commence the learning science subjects and mathematics in indigenous languages.
Making the disclosure during a retreat organized for researchers in Akure, the Ondo state capital, Director-General of the National Centre for Technology Management, Prof. Okechukwu Ukwuoma, said experts are being contracted to translate science and Mathematics in various indigenous languages.

Ukwuoma, who is a member of a committee set up to supervise the project, said, “Last year, the Minister of Science and Technology and the Minister of Education inaugurated a committee to teach science and mathematics in indigenous languages.

“The major issue in that regard is the translation of terminologies to the languages for which we have consulted experts in different languages in the country.

“The don, who commended the Federal government on the idea, expressed optimism in the success of the project. He also noted that many textbooks had already been translated to some Nigerian languages through the efforts of the committee.

He lamented the lack of good research works in the country, blaming it on the lust for quick and easy money amongst the people.

He added, “All over the world everything about science and technology is always hard to sell because you need to convince people.

“Nigerians are good researchers, but they lack something. Many businessmen who are supposed ensure the commercialization of research inventions prefer to buy fake ones outside the country and come back to make quick money.”
