WHY AN ITSEKIRI LEARNING PLATFORM?

Presently, roughly 87 percent of Itsekiri children of age 0-19 years in Warri, Sapele and Benin cannot speak Itsekiri fluently and about 80 percent cannot speak at all. This is excluding those outside the shores of the country.

This is because at the peak of Warri crises, majority of Itsekiri population in our rural areas moved to the cities where English language is majorly used for communication such Warri,Sapele,Benin,Lagos, Portharcourt where the Itsekiri language is not spoken often through social interactions.

This age grade of Itsekiri children are quietly the next generation of Itsekiri parents that may not be able to transfer the Itsekiri language to their children, because they presently cannot speak it at all.

If we agree to this,then we are obviously looking in front of us the extinction of Itsekiri language in approximately 2 generations to come,we can say in 60years from today.
