Nigeria schools to reintroduce history subject beginning from the 2018/2019 academic session.

This was disclosed to newsmen in Abuja by the Executive Secretary of Nigeria Education Research and Development Council (NERDC) Mr. Ismail Junaidu.

According to Junaidu, 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.

Junaidu further explained 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'” Junaidu said.
