Nigeria was among the first countries in Africa to form a national Bible translating organization. In 1962, the University of Nigeria signed a cooperative agreement with Wycliffe’s partner, SIL International, to carry out language development work. Out of this partnership, the Nigeria Bible Translation Trust (NBTT) was born. In 1976, NBTT assumed the responsibility for Bible translation for the minority language groups of Nigeria. NBTT aims to serves Nigeria in the areas of language development, Bible translation, translator training, vernacular media services, and Scriptures engagement activities.
