House of Representatives ask Ministry Education not to group CRS and IRS under Civic Education

The House of Representatives has asked the Ministry of Education not to group subjects like Christian religious studies (CRS) and Islamic religious studies (IRS) under civic education.

In the revised universal basic education curriculum implemented by the Nigerian educational research and development council (NERDC), both subjects were grouped under civic education.

House of Representatives member, Beni Lar, a People’s Democratic Party (PDP) lawmaker from Plateau state, opposed the compulsory inclusion of religious education in the revised curriculum.

Lar charged his colleagues to consider the issue which has sparked controversy in the country.
After a debate, the lower legislative chamber adopted the motion to ask the ministry of education not to merge the subjects.
