The Federal Government has directed all basic and secondary schools across Nigeria to immediately resume the teaching of history as a standalone subject from the next academic calendar.
Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Education, Sonny Echono announced this during interview with Journalists.
According to Echono, the directive has already been given and it is automatic that all the schools should implement simultaneously.
“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.
The Federal Government also ordered that all primary school teachers be trained to deliver digital literacy.
