FG denies removing CRK from Secondary School Curriculum

The Federal Ministry of Education has denied reports that Christian Religious Knowledge, CRK, has been removed as a subject of study from the curriculum of public secondary schools in Nigeria while Islamic Religious Studies, IRS, has been reintroduced.

Director of Press, Federal Ministry of Education, Mrs. Chinenye Ihuoma, who denied the report, said the Ministry had only designed a new subject which merged Civic Education, IRS, CRK and Social Studies into “Religion and National Values.”


“The alternation is not from the minister, this is purely from the National Council on Education. It is just as the council has said that History should be a subject of its own at the basic level in the first nine years. Now, a new subject has been introduced, called Religion and National Values. It is a fusion of religion and civics. I have not seen the details but in a case where you have subject combinations in the same period, everyone will attend lectures that correspond with their own religion. Arabic and Islamic Studies are not standing alone. Islamic Religious Study and Christian Religious Study as well as national values will be taught under a new subject.”she said

"I have not seen the details " Why then are you outrightly denying an issue which details you have not seen. Those who raised the alarm must have seen the details.

You are a true human being
Religion is one of our biggest problems after ethnicity. Nigerians should be reasonable and stop listening to people who live and feed on religion.

This is a bullshit. The motive was to weather down CRK and introduce other components subject that would make it seems expendable. What values can you teach a child with an Islamic terrorist religion?

Noni you are absolutely right. But a lot of ignorant and intolerable people in Nigeria today. Unfortunately the loud voices of the agitators of unrest is louder than that of common sense. May we not see war in this country. Just take a look at the war torn regions. War is not child's play. And everybody will suffer. Stop trying to cause unrest. Nothing is ever solved by war or violence. But Alas, the human race never learns!

Dear Director of Press, Federal Ministry of Education, Mrs. Chinenye Ihuoma,
Say what you know and forget about what you don't know.May you not be a tool in the hands of the evil one.
It is better we fight for it now before it is too late. CRK has been and it has really added values to the lives of millions of Christians "Why remove it now".
Dear Minister and all the councils involve watch yourself before it will be too late.

Mr Man, she said she has not seen the details , but she can come out here to outrightly deny it.. The agitators have obviously seen d details .. The curriculum could give favour to Islamic studies as against Christian Religious Knowledge and everything else..
So Oga, you just tweeted your ignorance

First of all this copy and paste that was done on this blog isn't detailed and is twisted. Subjects are categorized e.g igbo, hausa, Yoruba end up in the language category. These are individual subjects by the way. It's the same as irs and crs being placed under religion (this has been the norm at least when I was in school with everyone separating when it's time for religious studies. It was on the time table as crs/irs) . The other subjects civic education, social studies blah blah are under national values (new comers minus social studies). The combination of all these subjects is under the category called religion and national values. No subject was taken away. Each subject under this category has it's own curriculum per academic year. French is compulsory from grade 4 and above in primary schools. Arabic is optional, has always been. Can we please allow sleeping dogs lie? Or research this for ourselves and not rely on hearsay from either politicians who are looking for a way to get back into power by winning favours from gullible masses or clergies that raised dust without proper research.
Thank you.

Just leave CRK alone....
There are some subjects that could've been merged...

Most of the stuff in that combined subject are from Islam. You tell kids that Jesus is not the son of God. GOD does not have children. Muhammed is the only prophet. How does this work. Leave the subjects as they are. No need to mix it. And the lady is just tweeting her foolishness. She doea not even know what the details are but she is talking about it.by the way who is chairman of that council?.your guess is as good as mine
