Nigerian govt. to deploy Yoruba teachers to Brazil

Nigeria will soon deploy experts to teach the Yoruba language in Brazil, Aminu Nabegu, the Director monitoring evaluation and research in the Directorate of Technical Aid Corps, said on Friday.

Mr. Nabegu said in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) 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 of Brazil, found in the Bahie region of Brazil, are the major targets for this programme.

“That is where we have large numbers of people believed to be the descendant of the Oduduwa,” he said.

Mr. Nabegu 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.

    The conclusions then under Yar’ Adua is practically the same for Buhari today. The President will be doing the right thing to resign or FEC members be sufficiently patriotic to kick start the process detailed in section 144 of our constitution. Nigeria deserves to move forward and develop. Not being on your desk for over 66 days is a proof of permanent incapacitation.

    The President may shock the world by making a powerful comeback anytime soon. He is recovering very fast and well according to unconfirmed reports. What will persons agitating and calling for the President’s resignation say at that time? I know the President is coming back soon. But how soon? I am not able to say. He didn’t go to the UK to die there
