Igede Ihyoo! Here comes another edition of Igede Proverb of the Day Episode 009. Today, we shall look at a very simple and straight forward proverb.
The proverb in Igede language ?
Ikaa nw’ojiga no gbe obiyo
The English translation of the Proverb ?
They kill a rat awaiting grass cuter.
This proverb teaches one to be patient in life. To count one before counting another. “ikaa nw’ojiga no gbe obiyo” simply means you need to have a little one before craving for a bigger one. Rat is smaller than grass cuter. After killing a rat as a hunter, you work hard and kill a grass cuter next.

So many Igede proverbs teach about patience. Another one says “odumwo dumwo ada ediye ochi ka”. Which means “going slowly doesn’t stop journey. Of course there are better ways those expressions are made in English. E.g: “Slow and steady wins the race”.
Ela nya odehe ri odumwo dumwo inyi, owa dudu k’adayi ya nyori ikaa nw’ojiga no gbe obiyo le.
The above sentence says: “the issues of this world need to handled gradually and that’s why our fathers say; one kills rat awaiting grass cuter”. Watch out for the next edition which comes tomorrow. Do well by sharing to others. God bless Igede Land. Igede Ihyoo!!!
