The Guosa Language evolutionist, Prof. Alex Igbineweka has engaged the fifty students of the University of Abuja in the Guosa language train-the-trainers for two weeks.
Igbineweka, who spoke with our correspondent during the programme at the permanent site of the University, said the Guosa language is a common indigenous lingua Franca in the Economic Communities of West African States (ECOWAS).
He said: “Guosa language is a scientific and artistic evolution of integration of all languages and dialects to be found in Nigeria and other West African nations”.
According to him, Guosa is a language by the people from the people and for the people, adding that Guosa language is a medium of communication for unity, identity, tourism, political stability, culture, science and technological breakthrough.
His words: “Guosa language is now an international language that has gradually spread its tentacles in international academic institutions worldwide. The American Heritage University in Southern California has adopted it as a subject and anybody can apply to study Guosa language in the University.”
He further added: “The West Contra Costa Unified School District Adult Education Department California has included the Guosa language into the state of California school syllabus”.
He then appealed to the management of the National Universities Commission (NUC) to work with him to develop the Guosa language for the sake of generation yet unborn.
The Guosa language originator, however, advised the students in the institutions of higher learning across the globe to deem it necessary to learn or study the language, saying that Guosa is a language that connects every ethnic group or every tribe in Nigeria.
Also speaking during the Train-The-Trainers Prgramme, a 200 level student in the Department of Linguistics at the University of Abuja, Adejumo jumoke Grace, commended the initiator of the Guosa language for the step been taken to form the language.
