FG to Send Yoruba Teachers to Teach in Brazil



The Federal Government of Nigeria is planning to deploy indigenous Yoruba Language teachers to teach the language in Brazil.
This was disclosed by the Director Monitoring, Evaluation and Research in the Directorate of Technical Aid Corps, Aminu Nabegu, who said  that the countries were already discussing the modalities for the implementation of the programme.
He said once the agreement was reached the government would deploy the teachers and some cultural experts to Brazil.
“The Yoruba-speaking communities, which reside in the Bahie region of Brazil, are the major target for this programme.
“That is where we have large numbers of people believed to be the descendant of the Oduduwa,” he said.
Aminu said a centre for the study of Yoruba culture and  language had been opened in Brazil.
The Director also said a similar programme had been extended to Yoruba-speaking communities in Benin Republic. (NAN)
