As Chinua Achebe said, "proverbs are the palm-oil with which words are eaten [in the Igbo language]". Quotes and proverbs are a pillar of the Igbo language and any good speaker is expected to know proverbs or to recite quotes, this is why an Igbo version of wikiquote would not only be excellent but ideal. Wikiquote was made for this language, and this is why I am in favour of the creation of an Igbo wikiquote (Wikinsereokwu). There may not seem to be a strong community backing the creation of this project, and this is because most Igbo speakers don't even know something like this can exist, or will exist. Please allow wikiquote, or Wikinsereokwu, to exist in the language it was created for.

Arguments in favour[edit]

  • Support I think that igbo languaga should be in this site. I'm a proud igbo person, and I think that thee should be a way to share this unique language all over the world.
