Anambra State government is partnering the American Computer giant, Microsoft, to programme Igbo language into computer software. Governor Peter Obi, who disclosed this at the first Ofala celebration of the traditional ruler of Igbukwu, Igwe Martin Eze, said this was part of efforts to promote the use of Igbo language and increase computer literacy among Ndigbo.

Governor Obi said Igbo language was not only compulsory in all secondary schools in the state but also a major language to be used in all social functions.
