Ebonyi State Governor, Rt Hon. Francis Nwifuru has advocated the use of dialects in teaching children and wards in public and private Schools in South East Zone.
Governor Nwifuru in a statement issued by the Special Assistant on Documentation, Dr Boniface Nwankwo called on the apex socio-cultural organization to employ more effort in fostering unity in the region.
Speaking through the Chief of Staff, Professor Emmanuel Echiegu on Tuesday, Governor Nwifuru said apart from helping the teachers to properly drive home their teachings, the method would help save the dialects from going into extinction.
The Governor who was addressing the leadership of Ohaneze Ndigbo, Ebonyi State Chapter, led by Dr. Peter Mbam charged the group to brace up in promotion of the cherished Igbo customs and Traditions through their daily programmes and activities.
The Governor while assuring that his administration will continue to assist the Organization where necessary appealed to them to continue to advise Ndigbo on the need to embrace peace at all times.
