After a 10-year struggle, the Urhobo Language Curriculum for Primary and Secondary Schools is finally approved by the Delta State Government. The State Governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, on Friday, December 1, 2017, officially presented and launched the Curriculum. Our Children can now study Urhobo at the Primary School and JSS Level.
The battle is still on, Urhobo Language Curriculum for SSS is still in the works, we shall not relent until Urhobo Language is made a WAEC subject. I thank Prof Mrs. Aziza-led Urhobo Studies Association, who began the struggle consistently, selflessly and patriotically. I also thank the UPU Women (Ewheya) led by President, Dame Christy Siakpere and others for their role in achieving this feat within a year of my administration.
