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.
