The Benin monarch, His Royal Majesty, Oba Ewuare II has raised concern over elimination of history as a standalone subject in schools, warning that ‘those who do not know their past are doomed to relieve it’.
The traditional ruler made the assertion when he played received Presidential aspirant of Peoples Democratic party (PDP) and governor of River State, Nyesom Wike at his palace in Benin City, Edo State.
According to him, “What seems to be worrisome now is that our children are not taught their own Language in schools” and deliver digital literacy in the area of discipline.
Oba Ewuare II also said, “They (governments) have event stopped teaching History. How do we know our past…Those who do not know their past are doomed to relieve it.
“The legacies of Europeans have been handed over to us. However, Nigerians must not forget their tradition and Language when they get to Europe or America”, he said.
Recall that the Nigerian government had in June 2019 promised the return history to school Curriculum and ensured that all primary school teachers are trained to carryout the task.
