Our children are growing up truncated because of lack of history in our curriculum, says Soyinka
Nobel Laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka has expressed worries over the future of the country, adding that the nation’s children are growing up truncated because of lack of history in its school curriculum.
He said the country must leverage on its history to improve the future.
Soyinka spoke yesterday in Lagos at a special panel session organised by the United Bank for Africa (UBA) to commemorate Africa Day.
The event is with the theme, “Africa’s History Redefined: Our past, a path to the future”.
Also, Femi Kuti noted that colonisation which has brought several languages to the region is responsible for its fights and tussle. He added that the continent has failed to appreciate its 5OO years of the slave trade.
In her opinion, the daughter of Ghana’s Kwama Nkrumah, Samia urged all stakeholders to stand up for the total liberation and unification of Africa.
According to her, it would be easier to meet the needs of the African people if all work together, adding that total liberation comes with total unification.
