YORUBA LANGUAGE IS GOING PLACES

YORUBA LANGUAGE IS GOING PLACES

– State of Maryland Adds Yoruba Language to its Portal

By Kwevi Quaye

The U.S’ State of Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration has added Yoruba Language to its portal, for Drivers’ Permit Test, Vehicle Registration, and Study Materials. Yoruba Language was added, based on the latest data from the United States Census, which shows that Yorùbá was one of the largest non-English languages spoken in the state. This means that starting from September 2023, Maryland residents will be able to take their learner’s permit in the Yoruba Language. This development is not even available in Nigeria, the country with the largest concentration of Yoruba Language speakers.  The announcement is part of the new initiatives around the state to reflect its growing and diversepopulation.
