They condemned the parents, institutions of learning, and media houses that place foreign languages above Yoruba language and culture.

Both guests however gave kudos to the Oyo State Government for the recent directive given by the State Ministry of Education at making teaching and learning of Yoruba language compulsory in all government and private primary and secondary schools across the state.

They called on other South Western states’ governments in the country to take a cue from the laudable step taken by the Oyo State Government in order to save Yoruba language from going into extinction.
