Only 65 per cent of Nigerians feel they ‘understand or communicate effectively in English’ according to a recent survey of the nation, which has over 500 indigenous languages. A large majority of those surveyed by NOIPolls attributed the ‘declining quality of English’ to the infrastructure of ‘the poor educational system’.

Nine out of ten Nigerians were willing to pay to improve their English. For more on Nigeria’s survey of attitudes to English, see https://www.today.ng/news/nigeria/175287/poor-educational-system-blamed-declining-quality-english-language-survey
