Yes! Yes! Yes! The Ibibio Bible is here.
This is probably old news to some of you who follow the news. For those of you who don’t, you heard it here first.
On the 27th of August, 2020, the first ever edition of the Ibibio Bible translation was launched. This is different from the Efik Bible translation we all know ehich has been around for years.
The inauguration was attended by the governor of the state, Governor Udom Emmanuel, his wife, Mrs Martha Udom Emmanuel, as well as the first indigenous military governor of the state, Idongesit Nkanga.
A lot of work went into making this dream a reality and it included efforts from some of the foremost linguists in the state.
For now, only the New Testament is available, but I’m sure work is already going into making sure we have the entire Bible in Ibibio.
I guess I better start brushing up on my Ibibio.
