Minister of Education,  Adamu Adamu says there is no truth in reports that Christian  Religious Knowledge and Islamic Religious Studies have been removed from the education curriculum.
 
The minister who spoke at the end of Wednesday's Federal Executive Council meeting  at state house Abuja explained that the Ministry of Education had done the opposite of what it had been accused.

In another development, acting President Yemi Osinbajo has asked political leaders to speak up against the peddlers of hate and divisive sentiments in the country.
 
He spoke yesterday at a meeting with state governors, warning that if prompt responses were not given to inflammatory speeches, things could spiral out of control.
