President Muhammadu Buhari has directed the Ministry of Education to include two Islamic Studies books written by the late Justice Muhammad Bashir Sambo in the secondary school curriculum for all Federal Government Colleges.

He gave the order in Kaduna, at the launching of the reviewed editions of the books, which were originally published in 1974.

The President, who was represented by the Kaduna State Governor, Mallam Nasir el-Rufai, noted that books of this kind have become necessary in the face of declining moral and religious values in the country.

Mallam Mukhtar Lere reviewed Islamic Studies for Secondary Schools to conform with the current 6-3-3-4 educational system in the country.

Buhari however urged the Education Ministry peruse the books with a view to adopting them in all government colleges.
