Bayero University, Kano, has reportedly translated physics, chemistry, and mathematics textbooks into the Hausa language to aid learning.

A twitter user, with the name Muhd El-Bonga Ibrahim, has hailed the development as very good work, saying it will help those who find it difficult to speak English language, the country’s lingua franca.

He also urged that the same thing be done at the primary level.

Professor Liyu Mu’azu, who led the translation team, said that they translated eight textbooks in the field of science and technology.


Gimba Kakanda, a Nigerian writer, called the move a “welcome development, and a very effective way to domesticate science and technology in our society”.

Nonetheless, Nigerians reacted to the news. Read some of them below:
