This is in line with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization’s declaration on the promotion of Mother Tongue.
Speaking at the Government House Owerri, the Special Adviser on Igbo Affairs, Rev. Fr. Jerome Okonkwo said all Igbo speaking States including Delta and Rivers would converge on Imo State for the celebration which would also witness the presentation of the first Imo State Igbo Journal called “Achara” as well as other cultural activities.
Rev. Fr. Okonkwo commended the support of the State Govenor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha in the promotion of Igbo Language to ensure that it does not go into extinction as been predicted.
