The Federal Government has directed all basic and high schools across the country to immediately implement the teaching of history study as a mandatory subject as from the next academic calendar.
Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Education, Sonny Echonno, disclosed this on Friday morning in an interview with pressmen in Abuja.
The FG on June 18 promised the return of history to school curriculum while ensuring that all primary school teachers are trained to deliver digital literacy.
According to the Permanent Secretary, 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 stated.
