Jonathan’s administration was responsible for the CRK/IRK saga- Education Minister Adamu Adamu


The minister of education Adamu Adamu has said that the Goodluck Jonathanadministration formulated and implemented the policy that combined CRK, IRK and Civic Education into “Religion and National Values”, stating that the Muhammadu Buhariadministration actually cancelled it.

Controversy had trailed the policy as some quarters had alleged that the current administration is seeking to Islamize the school curriculum and the minister made the clarification on Tuesday.

The policy has also been cancelled and the NERDC has been directed to revert to the old curriculum.


Adamu said that at the time the combined CRK/IRK Policy was implemented, President, Minister of Education, and Permanent Secretary and Director Basic Education in the Ministry of Education were all Christians.
