Pupils to be taught in mother tongue, as FEC approves national language policy for primary education

The Federal Executive Council, FEC, has approved a National Language Policy for use in all primary schools across the country.

Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, made this known to State House correspondents at the end of the Council meeting in Abuja yesterday, which was presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari.

According to the Minister, the decision is only in principle for now, because it will require a lot of work to implement it.

He further revealed that the Council approved a consultancy services agreement between Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, and a private company for the upgrade of the portal, on which the Board records candidates seeking admission into higher institutions of learning.
