Nigerians React As Ministry Of Education Merges CRS, IRS, And Others Into One Subject



Reports just reaching us that the Federal Ministry of Education has merged Christian Religious Studies (CRS) and Islamic Religious Studies (IRS),Civic Education, Social Studies, and Security Education as One subject.

Nigerians React As Ministry Of Education Merges CRS, IRS, And Others Into One Subject

Following the efforts of the Federal Ministry of Education in reducing the workload of primary and junior secondary pupils, it was learnt that subjects like Christian Religious Studies (CRS) and Islamic Religious Studies (IRS),Civic Education, Social Studies, and Security Education will now be merged into one compulsory subject known as Religion and National Values (RNV).

This move has attracted mixed reactions from Nigerians. While some see it as a welcomed development, others see it a move in the wrong direction.

According to one commenter: “this plan will fail in core northern states because no teacher will dare teach an Almajiri about Jesus Christ that will not have his head on a pike the next day.”

“It will faill in SS/SE because No teacher there will be able to teach students Qur’anic education because they don’t even know it and will NEVER learn it.”

“It will be a success in the SW because of religious tolerance that they espouse.”

What do you have to say about this new development?

Will this promote peace and unity or trigger religious crisis?
