Outrage As New Educational Curriculum Gives Islamic Studies More Importance Than Christianity Studies

The new school curriculum is really generating a lot of heat with many Nigerians speaking up loudly against it. The curriculum removes Christian Religious Knowledge (CRK) from schools and allowed only as a topic under civics, while it introduces Islamic Arabic Studies alongside French as subjects.With the new arrangement, a pupil would have to study either of Islamic Arabic Studies or French, pointing out that the end result is that a Christian student will be left with no option than to settle for Islamic Arabic Studies due to the inadequacy of French tutors in the nation.Human rights and prominent voices have been condemning the move which they say is absolutely unconstitutional and amounts to an attempt to impose one religion as a state religion against constitutional provision in section 10. The chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria said, “To us in CAN, its introduction is an ill-wind that blows nobody any good for so many reasons. A state has started implementing it already and Christians that are more on the receiving side of it are already crying fowl because of its potential dangers now.”Apostle Johnson Suleman of the Omega Fire Ministries also lent his voice against what many see as an Islamization attempt on a secular Nigerian State, saying “This evil policy must be reversed immediately. What is sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander. Christain Religious Knowledge (CRK) must be restored to the school curriculum.” Also Joining in the condemnation of the curriculum are Femi Fani-Kayode and Reno Omkri.Photo Credit: Getty
