has so much noise about an attempt to Islamize Nigeria. Because of the alleged
removal of CRK from the syllabus. This news is false.
CRK hasn't been
removed from the syllabus.
What the new
curriculum did was to merge related courses under one group.
The new subject
referred to by this group comprises:
Studies or Islamic Religious
Studies + Social Studies +
Civil Education + Security Education.
This combined subject
is now called Religious and National Values Education.
According to the
curriculum, each school DECIDES to do CRS or IRS as it has always been.
For example, this
new curriculum was used in the just concluded, NECO exam.
In the NECO exam,
the question paper comprises of CRS, IRS, Soc stud, Civil Ed and Security Ed.
The instruction on the question paper stated clearly that each candidate(s) is (are)
required to do EITHER CRS or IRS.
Why the fuss?
Our country is
already divided on many fronts; it’s unfair and unnecessary to create more
means of division, most especially when it’s based on falsehood.
