Ekiti - Ekiti state governor, Ayodele Fayose has commended the federal government and the All Progressives Congress (APC) national leader, Bola Tinubu for aligning with his position on the need to reintroduce History in the school curriculum.

Fayose, had early September, directed that History be reintroduced in schools in Ekiti State, noting that; “Ekiti people must learn from past events to have a better future.”

Last week Thursday, the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, while declaring open, the ministerial session of the 61st National Council on Education (NCE), in Abuja, called for disarticulation of Social Studies and reintroduction of History as a subject in the current Basic Education curriculum, adding that there was the urgent need to give the Nigerian children character.

Tinubu on Tuesday, made a strong case for the return of History as a subject in the country’s school curriculum, saying any nation which forgets its past has lost a beacon to guide its actions. He said this in a short remark after reviewing the book, entitled Muhammadu Buhari: The Challenges of Leadership in Nigeria, at the International Conference Centre, Abuja.

In his reaction, Governor Fayose, who spoke through his special assistant on public communications and new media, Lere Olayinka, said he was happy that those holding power in Abuja listened to what he said on September 2, 2016 on the need to reintroduce History in our schools.

He described the removal of History as a subject from the current Education curriculum as a mistake that should be corrected without further delay.
