The sequential Pronoun is noticed in Nkwen Language when a person carries out a series of activities in a sequence or serially. For Example
Ləm à ghə ŋkha ədzͻ̀, mbû nsû, nti’i nniŋə a məme àkaŋə ŋkwusə. (Lem went and harvested plums, came back, prepared it, put it in a dish and covered.)
The sequential markers m, n and ŋ,as illustrated above refer to the same person “Ləm”. Without these markers the sentence cannot be coherent. Thus there is a degree of cohesion between these markers and the person for several verbs in a sequence.

The Apostles’ Creed
I believe in God, the Father almighty, Creator of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried; he descended into hell; on the third day he rose again from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty; from there he will come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.
Lord Jesus, by your cross and resurrection you set us free, you are the Savior of the world. As we profess our faith in you by reciting the Apostle’s Creed, help redeem the world from the corona virus. Thank you Lord Jesus.
