"Efik is spoken with tribal dialectal differences by more than
1.2 million people in Calabar Province of Nigeria. Numerous
tribes, collectively known as Ibibio (Anang, Andone, Eket,
Enyong, and Efik) speak related dialects, of which Efik is the
accepted literary form and the one used in education. The
Ibibio tongues form a dialect cluster within the Benue-Congo
language group. Ogoni is a related language.
The Efik New Testament, the first Testament to be published in--1000 Tongues [Info only]
an African language by the National Bible Society of Scotland,
was unusual in that it was bound with the Book of Genesis.
The story behind this interesting publication has often been
recounted. When the recently freed slaves of the West Indies
heard that Scriptures were being prepared for the Calabar
region, where most of the Jamaican slaves and their forebears
had been taken into bondage, it was decided that they would
contribute to the evangelization of their African kinsmen. Thus,
out of their penury, these freedmen saved enough to finance the
translation and printing of the Efix Genesis. The Efik Old
Testament appeared in 1868, the first complete Bible in a lan-
guage of Nigeria and the sixth in an African tongue."
