FG says no merger of Christian and Islamic knowledge subjects

Federal Ministry of Education has directed secondary schools to teach the Islamic religious studies and Christian religious studies as separate subjects.

Education minister, Mallam Adamu Adamu, who made the clarification in a statement, said the directive should end the speculation that the two subjects had been merged as a compulsory subject in secondary schools.

The confusion is said to have been caused by a publisher who had published a book on the merger of the two subjects now being used by some private secondary schools.

The minister said secondary school students are at liberty to study any of the two subjects, since both subjects are not treated as a single subject in the syllabus of WAEC.

The proposed merger of the two subjects had attracted opposition from several Christian religious organizations, particularly the Catholic Church.
