Nigerians have reacted to the news that the Federal Government will reintroduce history into the primary school curriculum.
After being removed from primary and secondary school curricula in the 2009/2010 academic year, the Federal Government formally announced the reintroduction of History as a subject in the basic education curriculum.
According to the Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu, the need for the reintroduction arises because the national cohesion of the country is being threatened.
