The Islamic World Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (ICESCO), established by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), has officially recognized Nigeria Language Village (NALV), Ngala, as a training hub.

The village will thus work with the organization to contribute to world peace and security and promote dialogue among civilizations, cultures and religions.

This was disclosed by the director and chief executive officer of the village, Professor Ibrahim Muhammad, in a statement.  

 He said the village was officially recognized by ICESCO as the hub for Arabic language training in Nigeria in cooperation with Hamdan bin Rashid al Maktoum on the recommendations of the federal government through the Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu.

He said the village will also very soon extend its services to Tsangaya schools and offer classes to out-of-school kids in addition to teaching special Arabic.     

With its headquarters in Rabat, Morocco, other objectives of ICESCO are strengthening and promoting cooperation among member states in the fields of education, science, culture and communication, and consolidating understanding among peoples inside and outside member states among others. 

NALV, Ngala is an inter-university centre for Arabic studies established in 1992 by the federal government under the tutelage of the National Universities Commission (NUC) and the Federal Ministry of Education.

It has the mandates to offer Language Immersion Course to 300 level undergraduate students of Arabic in Nigerian universities and acculturation course for Arabic students of Colleges of Education.
