|Senate President, Bukola Saraki|
The christaian group who took its protests to the Senate, criticised the new nine-year Basic Education Curriculum as unfair to Christian pupils.
Punch reports that the controversial curriculum seeks to make Islamic Religious Knowledge and Christian Religious Knowledge compulsory subjects, irrespective of pupils’ religious beliefs.
The leader of the delegation, Prof. Charles Adisa, who represented the National President of CAN, 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 alleged that the account of the birth and resurrection of Jesus Christ had been distorted in one of the books in the new curriculum.
“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 said.
He said it was the position of CAN that IRK and CRK should be offered separately, while Social Studies and Civic Education should be merged, adding that the federal and state ministries of education should employ more teachers for religious subjects.
In his remarks, Bukola Saraki, urged stakeholders in the education sector to remain calm on the matter to enable the National Assembly to look into the various issues involved.
He assured the delegation that the Senate Committee on Basic Education would investigate the complaints of CAN against the new curriculum, with a view to making it acceptable and satisfactory to all religions.
