Members of the House of Representatives have rejected the Federal government’s policy which put Christian Religious Knowledge, CRK under Civic Education.
They have also made same compulsory in the 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.
Lawmakers agreed that the policy never agreed with the spirit and letters of the 1999 Constitution (as amended) on the provision of religious liberties.
The House therefore agreed that students with the inputs of their parents at early years should be taught the religious subjects of their choice in school.
