CAN Takes Protest To Saraki Over New CRK Curriculum

The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) on Wednesday, took its protests to the Senate, over the controversial introduction of National Values/Civic Education schools’ curriculum.

The new curriculum seeks to make Islamic Religious Knowledge (IRK) and Christian Religious Knowledge (CRK) compulsory subjects, irrespective of pupils’ religious beliefs.

A delegation from CAN led by Charles Adisa who represented the National President, visited the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, in his office, where they criticised the new nine-year Basic Education Curriculum, saying it was unfair to Christian pupils.

Adisa called for the intervention of the National Assembly to ensure genuine respect for the constitution and the “abolition of obnoxious laws that infringe on freedom of worship.”

He added: “There is a portion in the curriculum that encourages the children to disobey the parents if they are opposed to an issue. When an educational programme encourages rebellion in the home, what will be the implication?”

Adisa reiterated that IRK and CRK should be offered separately, while Social Studies and Civic Education should be merged.
