Reading time: 1 Minute

The President-General of Urhobo Progressive Union (UPU), Olorogun Moses Taiga, has urged the Federal Government to jettison plans to set up a Fulani Radio station.

He said despite the explanation put forward by the government, the timing of the Radio station was wrong.

In a statement issued yesterday, Taiga said the government should rather concentrate on implementing fiscal federalism.

According to him, the UPU appreciates the need to promote the speaking of indigenous languages.

However, he added: “any government effort should either be holistic or each ethnic nationality should be left to preserve its culture and language.

“The selective promotion of the Fulani language has heightened tension among ethnic nationalities in the country and the project should be jettisoned at once.”

He decried the spate of insecurity in the country, urging the government to devote more energy to tackling the problem.
