A Yoruba culture activist, Akanni Omooba, has voiced his fervent appeal to the Speaker of the Osun State House of Assembly, Hon. Adewale Egbedun, urging the adoption of Yoruba as the official language of communication within the parliamentary proceedings.
Akanni Omooba, a youth development advocate and prince of Osogbo believes that embracing the Yoruba language in such a manner would not only preserve the cultural heritage of the state but also foster better understanding and representation among the people.
Yoruba, one of Nigeria’s major languages, according to Akanni Omooba boasts a rich history and a large number of native speakers within Osun State. The language holds significant cultural and historical value for the people of Osun, playing a pivotal role in shaping their identity and traditions.
He said, by adopting Yoruba as the language of communication in the State House of Assembly, Hon. Adewale Egbedun has the opportunity to demonstrate his commitment to the cultural preservation and advancement of the Yoruba people.
Akanni Omooba, a passionate advocate for Yoruba language and culture, emphasizes the numerous benefits that such a decision would bring.
“By using Yoruba as the language of communication, the parliament would create a more inclusive and accessible environment for all citizens, bridging the gap between the lawmakers and the people they represent. This linguistic transformation would enable a more direct and effective means of communication, resulting in better governance and the active participation of the public in the democratic process.
“Furthermore, the adoption of Yoruba as the official language would enhance civic education and awareness among the citizens of Osun State. It would foster a sense of pride and cultural unity, reinforcing the connection between the government and its constituents. By embracing the language of the people, Hon. Adewale Egbedun would strengthen the bond between the lawmakers and the Yoruba community, creating an environment that celebrates diversity while honoring the historical legacy of the state.
Akanni Omooba applauded the newly constituted Osun State House of Assembly for its commitment to promoting the cultural heritage of the Yoruba people, urged the honorable Speaker to champion this cause.
“The adoption of Yoruba as the language of communication within the parliamentary proceedings will be a significant step toward cultural preservation, inclusivity, and effective governance. It is a progressive move that will inspire other states in Nigeria to recognize and celebrate their native languages, contributing to the overall growth and development of the nation.”
