A Nigerian man, Maazi Ogbonnaya Okoro, has published a Physics textbook in the Igbo language to encourage the study of sciences in the language.

Recalls that Igbo linguistic expert commenced the translation of the physics textbook in 2023.

He explained that those without formal education will find the book easy to understand Physics.

He disclosed this in a post via his Facebook wall on Wednesday, March 12.

“Over the years, I have read so many threats facing the Igbo and how it will go extinct. This motivated me to embark on this project that seemed unattainable, for science subjects to be taught in Igbo. I started from Physics. I said I would do it, and I DID IT.

“This book is designed in a way that one without formal education can understand Physics. It’s needed in all libraries, schools, homes and for individual use.”
