The TY Buratai Humanity Care Foundation has commended the Nigerian government for reintroducing history in the country’s schools.
A statement by the National Coordinator of the foundation, Ibrahim Dahiru Danfulani noted that the grand patron of the foundation, Yusuf Buratai, a retired army general is a historian.
He therefore congratulated all historians while urging all schools managements to, as a matter of urgency, commence the teaching of history in the schools as directed by the federal government.
The statement quoted Buratai, who is also the Ambassador to the Republic of Benin as saying, “History is a great unifier, it is a leadership developer and a national character moulder.”
The foundation congratulated President Muhammadu Buhari and the Minister Federal Ministry of Education, Adamu Adamu for the all important decision.
It called on parents to inculcate the knowledge of history in their children to equipped them with the happening of the past in order to shape their today and prepare them for a better tomorrow.
Recall that the Nigerian government reintroduced history as a stand-alone subject in the basic education curriculum in the country, 13 years after its abolition.
Adamu Adamu, minister of education had announced this at the reintroduction ceremony/training of history teachers at the basic education level on Thursday, 24 November 2022 in Abuja.
