Nigeria Reintroduces History In Schools From 2018/2019 Academic Session by kayjay007(m): 4:33am On Oct 11, 2017
The Nigeria Education Research and Development Council (NERDC) is set to reintroduce History as a subject, beginning from the 2018/2019 academic session.
The NERDC Executive Secretary, Ismail Junaidu, told the News agency of Nigeria in Abuja on Tuesday that the curriculum is ready.
He said that the subject would now be a standalone curriculum and would be taught
from primary one to JSS III.
NAN reports that the National Council on Education had approved the reintroduction
of the subject in July.
The executive secretary said that the NERDC
had forwarded a sample of the new curriculum for History to the states to give them ample time to plan ahead of its implementation.
“All states are expected to be sensitised and teachers trained on how to use the curriculum before the implementation can begin.
“We need to give the states ample time to put their house in order before we start implementing the curriculum,” he told NAN.
According to him, History is already in the senior secondary school curriculum.
He said the implementation would only start after the curriculum had been distributed to states.
“We have begun work on the curriculum because the NCE has given the directive, it will soon get to schools.
“The implementation will commence in the next academic session,’’ he assured.
Mr. Junaidu added that the NCE had approved that all efforts should be made to ensure the commencement of History in schools and it will be accomplished.
“By the next academic session (2018/2019),
everything will be in place,’ the executive secretary said. (NAN)

Why did they scrap it earlier?
History Subject is indispensable in the school's curriculum as it makes the student acquainted with the past and history of Nigeria and Africa as a whole.
The children need to be taught how Ojukwu Deceived the igbos which led to their massacre during the civil war of 1967

This is a right move in the right direction.

It's the lack of adequate and accurate history that has made some people commit the same mistakes over and over.

The history of the civil war needs to be emphasised too.

This is definitely a good move. Too many people online are trying to rewrite history, and most people believe anything they read online. With this, at least the kids will get to know the real unbiased history of their country.

This is a fulfillment to a thummim of the light of GOD. Thanks to nature. Meanwhile, if you are an Ebira person out there, the full history of the EBIRA ORIGIN many millions of years from the time of the Homo Erectuses is available at this link. Very soon, nature will raise other people in Nigeria to bring the full history of other tribes in it to us so that you can stop taking the foreign and imported gods and ancestors as your gods and ancestors.

GRAPHIC HISTORY WHERE PICTURES OF THOSE WHO DIED SHOULD BE SHOWN OUR CHILDREN SO THEY WON'T BLOW THE FLAMES OF WAR AND DIVISION AND TRIBALISM AGAIN

The generation that doesn't value her past won't have a future. Those who don't learn from history are bound to repeat same mistakes in destiny

What is in our history that the government have been hiding from us.
Now they can't stop us from seeking knowledge through online and have decided to teach a controlled history.
We are watching.

Nigeria and her inconsistencies.

Good development though, lest we produce another president who refers to Germany as West Germany in the future.

They should model the history topics to make it more relevant. More attention should be given to political history with the aim of improving our political culture.

Ethnic/cultural history to be tought without bias or projecting one culture above another. Historical mistakes should also be pointed out when or where necessary and right approach/action be informed in case of present or future occurance.

This is to say, the sole purpose for history should be to inform the present in order to correct or shapen the future.

History shouldn't be limited to mongo park or lugard era. Events after independence and our political and social developments should form a major part of the history topics.

Stop teaching my children how the white man colonize the black man, making him keep looking inferior thereby, subjecting him to low self exteem.
