In his manifesto titled, Soludo Solution, the Governor of Anambra State, Prof. Charles Chukwuma Soludo promised to prioritise Nigerian history and ethics in the curriculum of schools in Anambra State. 

The news of the re-introduction of History as a subject to the state curriculum was made known by the state commissioner for education, Prof. Ngozi Chuma-Udeh in an interaction with the education secretaries of Anglican and Catholic Dioceses in her Awka office. She said that students will get to learn the history of the Igbo race all the way back to the era before colonisation with effect from the next Academic session which commences in September.

Chuma-Udeh said, “History as a subject has made a comeback in schools but with a slight adjustment as the history of the Igbo man dating from the pre-colonial, colonial and post-colonial eras has been included in the scheme. The present administration thought it wise to adopt this strategy because Igbo heritage is on the brink of extinction.”

Promise: “Prioritise Nigerian history and ethics in the curriculum”

The commissioner also added that, “Books on the subject will be out before the next academic session which begins in September this year. The present administration is looking at bringing wholesome and valued-based literature books to the classrooms. The next academic session will witness a lot of changes for the good of Anambra students and teachers.”

The re-introduction of history to the curriculum is a significant step in the preservation of the Igbo heritage. AdvoKC will visit schools in Anambra state at the commencement of the next academic session to confirm that students are indeed being taught the subject. Therefore,  we rate this promise In the Works
