Holy-Bible now in 24 Nigerian languages


The Holy Bible and the book for all Christians has been improved on.

 Punch reports that the Bible Society of Nigeria posited that it has finished translating the bible into 24 different Nigerian languages.

The languages are as follows: Itsekiri,Kanuri,Edo,Bokyi,Nupe,Hausa,Efik,Yoruba,Isoko,Ebira,Igbo,Hausa,Fulfude;Jju,Arabic,Tiv among others .

Deputy Manager of Media and Program BSN  Mr Benjamin Mordi stated that the bible will be given free to old people's homes, orphanages,people with visual disability, deaf people and prisoners.

The 24 various Nigerian language translations of the Bible will be on display at the one-week Bible marathon reading exercise which begins today in Lagos. The BSN reiterated that the Bible reading campaign will be declared open at Shepherd's Flock International Church, Lagos.According to sources it will take a week for the programme to be completed  at 50 centres across the country.

This is a good opportunity for the Bible to be read in different languages irrespective of sex and  age.
