Covenant University joins the rest of the English speaking global community to mark the English Language Day. Since Nigeria’s independence, English has continued to serve as Nigeria’s first official language in terms of its functions, not only as a medium of social interactions among educated Nigerians from different ethnic groups, but also as the language of government, education, commerce and so forth. However, the continual role of English as Nigeria’s nativised language of social and business communication is a reflection of the inability of the Nigerian society to develop a national language, perhaps due to the complexity of adopting one language from among over 450 indigenous languages, most of which are in danger of total extinction before the next fifty years. Efforts on some pilot projects to evolve a neutral national language have so far been unfruitful (e.g. WAZOBIA). Thus, English is likely to remain a neutral language of Nigeria’s social and economic life with a consistently rising profile.
