After 49 Years History is Reintroduced in Nigeria’s Education Curriculum

History has been reintroduced in the Nigerian Education Curriculum. History was removed from the curriculum in 1969 during the Nigerian-Biafra War replacing it with civic education and later social studies.

The Minister of Education made this known today. The removal of history made Nigerian students unaware of the history of the Nigeria-Biafra War and other political and historical information about the country.

The reintroduced history subject comes with a history guide which is a framework for the teaching of history. The official take off date is September 15, 2018.

A component of the new history guide is “Nigeria’s Heroes”
