Message 1: Festschrift For Munzali Jibril
Date: 01-Jun-2006
From: Dr. Ozo-mekuri Ndimele <mekuri01yahoo.com>
Subject: Festschrift For Munzali Jibril

The Executive Council of the Linguistic Association of Nigeria (LAN) met
recently at the University of Port Harcourt, Port Harcourt, whereupon it
was decided that the 5th Volume of the Celebrities Series entitled:
Convergence - English & Nigerian Languages be devoted to Professor Munzali
Jibril. The essence of this project is not only to celebrate scholarship in
our field, but also to congratulate Professor Jibril on his eventful tenure
as the Executive Secretary, National Universities Commission (NUC). As a
linguist of international repute, Professor Jibril has touched the lives of
many of his professional colleagues, friends and students. The festschrift
is our own little way to appreciate his good deeds, and to thank him for
his unparalled devotion to scholarship.

It is my pleasure therefore to invite well-written papers focusing on
English, Nigerian languages & their literatures for publication in the 5th
Volume of the Celebrities Series in honour of Professor Munzali Jibril.

Deadline: 30 December, 2006.
