The President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari has directed the inclusion of two Islamic Studies books in the secondary school curriculum for all Federal Government Colleges in the country.
This was made known last weekend during the launching of the reviewed editions of the books.
The President, who was represented by Kaduna state governor Nasir el-Rufai, urged the Federal Ministry of Education to include two Islamic Studies books written by the late Justice Muhammad Bashir Sambo in the secondary school curriculum for all Federal Government Colleges.
According to him, such books had become essential in the face of declining moral and religious values in the country.
The Islamic Studies for Secondary Schools, co-sponsored by the Bashir Sambo Centre for Islamic Da’awah and Jaiz Charity and Development Foundation in memory of late Justice Bashir Sambo, former Judge of Sharia Court of Appeal and the Code of Conduct Tribunal, were reviewed by Mallam Mukhtar Lere to conform with the current 6-3-3-4 educational system in Nigeria.
