Summary/Abstract: The sun of independence of the 60’s which spread like wildfire in black Africa, quickly changed into collective disillusionment. Indeed, after a decade of financial mismanagement, trial and error and economic mirage for some African countries, since 2010, it is the fever of economic emergence. This, like the sun of independence, has sounded the knell everywhere in sub-Saharan Africa, especially in Côte d’Ivoire, as the hymn of new faith. On all television, broadcasting and even newspaper, emergence is preached as the miracle pill to the social ills of the country by local and regional authorities (mayors, general councils) and the state. This obstinacy to the emergence has even programmed the premature death of customs and habits, including mother tongues, and this, in the sight and to the knowledge, "the beard and the eyes" of each and everyone. In Côte d’Ivoire, the problem remains, and yet few people (academics, politicians, actors of sustainable development and civil society) are alarmed. This Communication, which is a contribution to the promotion of mother tongues, aims at the establishment of national language (s) in Côte d’Ivoire as a vehicle for sustainable development.
