FG seeks to review secondary school curriculum



Dr. Benjamin Abakpa, executive secretary of the Nigerian National Senior Secondary Education Commission said the commission is set to review curriculum of secondary school education in the country.

The secretary disclosed this in a 3-day sensitization and advocacy program organized for education stakeholders in the north central geopolitical zone held in Benue State, said Fatima Bappare, the commission's spokesperson in a statement on Monday.

The secretary explained that the review is meant to improve the existing curriculum, in order to upscale the competence of the pupils.

He said this while noting that the commission has already commenced the revamping of the senior secondary schools across the country with clear strategies.

He also said other efforts are being made concurrently to develop an accurate database of senior secondary schools across the country.

The commission is optimistic of the impact the new strategies will make in addressing some of the challenges confronting senior secondary education in Nigeria.

He called on stakeholders to collaborate with the commission in ensuring that the lost glory of senior secondary education is fully restored.

Benson Abounu, Deputy Governor of Benue State commended the federal government for reviving the law that established the commission and charged the commission to render its services accordingly.
