The Lagos state government Law mandating a credit in Yoruba for admission is generating controversy online.
Nigerians on Twitter have been reacting to the Lagos State Government Law that makes a credit in Yoruba language a compulsory requirement for admission into tertiary institutions in Lagos state.
The law according to the government is designed to preserve and promote the Yoruba language in all schools across the state.
Apart from this, the Yoruba Language Preservation and Promotion Law also provides that all state-owned tertiary institutions are to incorporate the use of Yoruba Language in the General Studies (GNS) courses.
The law has, however, been generating controversy as Nigerians on Twitter have started reacting to the law.
LASPOTECH is one of the state owned higher institutions that will not admit candidates who do not have credit in Yoruba.
While many think the law will deprive qualified candidates of admission into higher institutions in Lagos, others praised Lagos government for the initiative.
