Publishers should embrace Yoruba writing

The literary world in Africa is dominated by the languages of former colonial powers. In the West African country the use of the English language is paramount. But there are many other languages in Nigeria, some areas are hotbeds of languages. Take for instance Plateau State in Central Nigeria, where languages abound. Many of these languages have only a small group of speakers (and readers and writers). In other parts of the country there are some major languages, with a use even outside the Nigerian borders.

Now an appeal has been made to make more use of the Yoruba language. An appeal has been made to publishers to make more use of these major languages.
