She said it is not even good for a child to understand the Igbo language and not be able to speak it fluently.
Chisom said she will be speaking Igbo to her daughter all the time so that she will grow up knowing the language. Several people have said she made a good decision especially as many Nigerian parents are fond of speaking the English language to their children.
