How Africa can overcome her language barrier - Rev Uja

The Executive Secre­tary of the Nigeria Christian Pilgrim Commission (NCPC), Rev Tor Uja, has can­vassed good language pol­icy for Africa to overcome her language challenges.
He spoke in Abuja at a dinner organised in his honour by Cote d’Ivoire’s Ambassador to Nigeria, Nee Toure Maman.
Uja stressed the need for the intervention of both the Nigeria and Cote d’Ivoire governments to incorporate both Eng­lish and French in their language policy to ease communication and strengthen bilateral rela­tions between the two countries and others in Africa.
The NCPC boss as­sured his host that he would embark on a spiri­tual visit to Cote d’Ivoire with some of his manage­ment staff to explore the holy sites in the country.
He said that the time had come to break the language barrier with Cote d’Ivoire, adding that there was the need to take bold steps to address lan­guage issues in Africa.
