JAMB Recommended Book "In Dependence" & Others Petitioned For "Immorality"

A Petition has been filed by the Management of Crescent Schools, Victoria Island, Lagos, to the Federal Ministry Of Education accusing both the National Examinations Council (NECO) and the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) of recommending some morally corrupt textbooks to students.

According to a close source heads may roll in the ministry and other concerned agencies of the government as preliminary investigation on the allegations as contained in the petition had indicated culpability of some officials of the affected parastatal.

According to the source, the Minister and his Minister of State counterpart, Prof. Anthony Anwukah, had found contents of the books morally repugnant, and prepared to sanction any official or officials of either the ministry or any agency of government found to be responsible for the ‘costly’ error.
The source said: “I can confirm to you that the Minister has received the petition and he is very angry about the development.

 You know that the Minister is a strong Muslim and his deputy, Prof. Anwukah is a knight in the church. So, they do not joke with anything immoral.

“I can assure you that jobs of anybody indicted may be on the line if care is not taken. It is a serious matter because the Minister cannot understand how those glaring errors escaped the attention of the concerned officials who are meant to vet and recommend the books.”

It would be recalled that the petition, which was signed by the Head of the school, Mrs. Fatima Mahmud-Oyekan and the Chairman of its Parent- Teacher Association, Alhaji Aliyu Gudaji, had said two books, “The Precious Child,” by Queen O. Okweshine and “The Tears of a Bride” by Oyekunle Oyedeji, “glamorize acts of indecency such as rape, violence, kidnapping, girl defilement and sexualisation of knowledge
