THE SPLENDOR OF YORUBA LANGUAGE

THE SPLENDOR OF YORUBA LANGUAGE

– Depository of Wisdom

YORUBA: Àdáṣe níí wun’ni; àjọṣe kìí wùn’nìyàn.

ENGLISH TRANSLATION BY DELE AJAJA: The sole decision-maker faces the consequences of the decision; but everyone is responsible for a group decision.

CLARIFICATIONS: This adage lays emphasis on the importance of teamwork. Whoever undertakes an unprofitable venture solely takes the blame for his/her decision. Conversely, a group takes responsibility for the failure of the decision hatched by the group.
