France has allocated €600,000 to invest in Nigeria, aiming to establish French as a language of communication within the country.

The French Embassy in Nigeria has initiated various projects to promote the use of French in secondary schools and public spaces, as announced by French Ambassador Emmanuella Blatmann during the launch of the Solidarity Funds for Innovative Projects (FSPI) in Abuja.

The objective of the project is to support French teachers in Nigeria through a special fund called “uja.” Blatmann explained that the FSPI initiative will facilitate the implementation of the program in 50 schools across five states, specifically Enugu, Plateau, Oyo, Lagos, and Abuja, where local partners have expressed their interest in enhancing educational cooperation efforts.

The ambassador said, “The Embassy of France in Nigeria officially sets in motion a new project entitled ‘French in Nigeria, the language of communication and capacity building,’ financed by a special fund called ‘Solidarity Funds for Innovative Projects (FSPI’ in French) to the sum of €600,000.

“This project, with the slogan “À toi le micro, Naija” (the mic is yours, Naija), aims at positioning French as a real language of communication in secondary schools and in the Nigerian public space, by supporting the training of secondary school teachers in Nigeria and creating a network of media platforms using the French language.

“In line with the foregoing, this FSPI project will make it possible to deploy a program for 50 schools in five States in which local partners have clearly expressed the desire to intensify educational cooperation actions: Enugu, Plateau, Oyo, FCT, and Lagos.

“These schools will benefit directly from a pilot initiative involving teacher training in France and in Nigeria, and the purchase of books and computer equipment.”
