The Nigerian Government Orders Teaching Of History As Standalone Subject
The Federal Government of Nigeria has directed all basic and secondary schools all over the country to with immediate effect implement the teaching of history as a standalone subject starting from the next academic calendar.
The Permanent Secretary for the Ministry of Education, Sonny Echono made this information known Friday, 21st June during an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory.

The Government had earlier on the 18th of June promised to return history to the school's curriculum, while ensuring that all the teachers at the primary school level are properly trained to deliver digital literacy.
The Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osibanjo has declared at the launch of Education for Justice Programme that the government had also kick-started the implementation in about 12 primary and secondary schools across the country and they have commenced the instructional classes.

According to the permanent secretary, the directive has been given and all schools should simultaneously implement it.
"By the next academic calendar, history will be taught as a standalone subject.
"It is with immediate implementation. So, definitely for the next academic year everybody will fall in line because we already articulated the curriculum and the examination should be done along those lines," he said.
