Currently, we have the complete Bible in 26 Nigerian Languages out of over 500 languages in Nigeria, while translation or revision work is going in other local languages.
It takes a minimum of twelve (12) years and over forty million Naira (₦40,000,000.00) to complete a language translation project. For the 11 ongoing projects, the Bible Society of Nigeria needs ₦500m to see projects through, while many more are awaiting consideration. The languages in translation/review as at now are Okun, Hausa Ajami,Edo Bible Revision, Eggon, Yungur and Old Yoruba Review.
