The federal government of Nigeria has formally announced the reintroduction of History as a stand-alone subject in the basic education curriculum in Nigeria 13 years after its abolition
A total of 3,700 History teachers have also been shortlisted for the first round of training for enhanced teaching of the subject
Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu, speaking at the flag-off ceremony of the reintroduction of the teaching of History & training of History teachers at the basic education level, on Thursday, lamented that the national cohesion was being threatened with the country retreating into primordial sentiments because of lack of knowledge of the evolution of Nigeria following the removal of History from the basic education curriculum.
Adamu was represented by the Minister of State for Education, Rt. Hon Goodluck Opiah at the event. It would be recalled that history was removed from primary & secondary education curriculums from the 2009/2010 academic session
