Arabic Language a Pillar of Cultural Diversity-Prof Abdulmumin

Speaking at the occasion to commemorate this year’s World Arabic Language Day, recently with the theme, ‘Arabic Language Academies: Necessity or Luxury?”, professor Sani Abdulmumin said Arabic is one of the oldest and the most widely spoken languages in the world.

The day, observed every 18 December yearly since 2012,  coincides with the day the General Assembly of the United Nations adopted Arabic as the sixth official language of the Organization in 1973.

On the theme of this year occasion, Sani Abdulmumin, said the theme emphasizes the need for the preservation of the language amidst the popularity of English and French languages in many parts of the world.

The Director also noted that a day such as this aims to shed light on the culture associated with the language.

“The Arabic language has given rise to a fascinating aesthetic, in fields as varied as architecture, poetry, philosophy, and song.

“Arabic has played a catalytic role in knowledge, promoting the dissemination of Greek and Roman sciences and philosophies to Renaissance Europe. It has enabled a dialogue of cultures along the silk roads, from the coast of India to the Horn of Africa,” the Arabic Scholar averred.

Dignitaries who graced the event were: chairman of the Governing Council, NGALA, Chief Okechukwu Christian Omeche, represented by Prof. Adam Muhammad Ajiri, member, Governing Council; Principal Officers, as well as staff, students and other invited guests who came from far and near.
