FG Launches History Curriculum For Schools

The Federal Ministry of Education has announced the launching of a new curriculum for the teaching and learning of history in basic schools across the country. 

The Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu said the new curriculum was designed to expose students to a body of knowledge that would enable them appreciate history as an instrument of national integration and nation building.

According to him, copies of the curriculum are already been circulated across all the states for immediate adoption and effective implementation. Adamu noted that the goal was also to provide material on the lives of credible role models for younger generation of Nigerians.

He explained that the new curriculum was approved by the 63rd meeting of the National Council on Education (NCE), which was held in Kano in June 2017. He added that the focus of curriculum is hinged on various aspects of the major themes of Nigerian history, with emphasis on the ties that bind us; and, in particular, the study of heroes and heroine in Nigeria over the ages has also been given prominence.

The Executive Secretary, National Education Research and Development Council (NERDC) noted that the reintroduction of history as a stand-alone subject at the basic education level was necessitated by the demand and concerns expressed by Nigerians at various levels. He said it is important for the students to be aware of the history of the country.
