Report gathered that, Aminu Nabegu, Director monitoring evaluation and research in the Directorate of Technical Aid Corps, on Friday said that Federal Government would soon deploy teachers to teach Yoruba Language in Brazil.
Aminu said that the countries were already discussing the modalities for the implementation of the programme.
He said once the agreement was reached the government would deploy the teachers and some cultural experts to Brazil.
“The Yoruba-speaking communities, which reside in the Bahie region of Brazil, are the major target for this programme.
“That is where we have large numbers of people believed to be the descendant of the Oduduwa,” he said.
Aminu said a centre for the study of Yoruba culture and language had been opened in Brazil.
The Director also said a similar programme had been extended to Yoruba-speaking communities in Benin Republic. (NAN)
