In a bid to encourage Igbo language and its cultural value, the Imo state government through the administration of Governor Anayo Rochas Okorocha, recently rolled out Free Igbo Language classes at the Imo state liaison office in Lagos for its citizens.

The governor's Special Assistant on Lagos Liaison, Hon. Lisa Asugha emphasized that the on-going Free Igbo Language education was in fulfillment to the office late last year's unveiled blueprint, which she said would strengthen Igbo's cultural institution.

Though, she added that the Free Igbo Language Education for Imo children both at home and abroad would also enable them speak the language fluently, as against being phased out by the new and digital generation.

However, she opined, “Truly, this will go a long way in helping our children both at home and abroad to learn and speak Igbo language fluently. It has been noticed that our language and culture is gradually phasing out in this new generation, and on this note, the governor has thought it wise to establish such a school to educate our children”.

Meanwhile, Asugha also disclosed that plans are in progress over the establishment of the first of its kind 'Imo City: Gallery of Igbo Heritage,' a world class monument that will take people through the evolution of Igbo race.

The gallery which according to her would be depicting the Igbo culture and heritage will also help children of the digital age understand what life and culture of the Igbo man used to be.

She also stressed that it would reflect the different stages of transition and evolution with the aim of presenting the traditional ways of life of the Igbo man, showing life in the villages before the advent of colonialism and post-colonialism
