House Of Reps Return CRK As An Independent Subject

Members of the House of Representatives have in Tuesday’s plenary jettisoned Federal government’s policy which put Christian Religious Knowledge, CRK under Civic Education and made same compulsory in Secondary School curriculum.

This followed a motion filed by Hon. Beni Lar, Plateau state, titled “Call to make Civic Education an optional instead of a compulsory subject for Senior Certificate Examination.”


After an exhaustive debate on the motion, the members agreed that the policy was incongruent with the spirit and letters of the 1999 Constitution (as amended) on the provision of religious liberties.

The House agreed that students with the inputs of their parents at formative years should be taught the religious subjects of their choice in school.

It was also agreed that CRK and Islamic Studies be treated independently.
