Igbo Market Days in Igbo Language

The Igbo Market Days

1st market day - Eke (or Ekeh)


2nd market day - Orie (or Orieh)


3rd market day - Afo (or Afor)


4th market day Nkwo (or Nkwor)

You may have left you wondering how native speakers of the Igbo language say "one day", "one week", "one month", and "one year".

They simply place the cardinal number ofu (=one) before the Igbo words for day, week, month and year, as the following examples show:

One day

Ofu ubochi



One week

Ofu izuuka



One month

Ofu onwa



One year

Ofu afo


Ndia no n'ahia. Aha ahia ahu bu Eke.
O na-azu kwa ubochi Eke.
Obodo obula nwere ahia ha na-azu.

O nwere ahia na-azu kwa ubochi.
Onitsha nwere otu nnuku ahia a na-akpo Otu Onitsha.

Otu onitsha na-azu kwa ubochi.
Obodo taunship di iche iche nwere ahia na-azu kwa ubochi.
Aha ahia di n'ala Igbo di ano.
Ha bu Eke, Orie, Afor, Nkwo.

N'obodo ufodu, e nwere nke uku na nke nta.
Iji ma atu, e nwere Eke-Ukwu, Orie-Ukwu,Afor-Ukwu, Eke-nta,Afor-nta Nkwo-nta.
Ndi Igbo maara otu e si azu ahia.
