NOA makes case for civic education to address value, discipline

The National Orientation Agency (NOA) says it will pursue the culture of value and discipline in the nation?s educational sector through civic education.
He said that the civic education would be rejuvenated in schools curriculum to make it meaningful and impact the lives of the Nigerian “future generation??.
The Director General of the agency Mike Omeri, said this in an interview on Monday in Abuja.
According to him, Civic Education as a curriculum in Nigerian schools will inculcate the values of discipline, hard work, respect for elders and constituted authority as well as love for  country.
He noted that educational qualification, without values held little hope for a bright future.
He called on the family as the primary agent of socialisation to take seriously the task of moral instruction for children in order to check moral decadence and social vices among the youths.
Omeri said that there could not be any future guarantee for youths and children who were being shielded from moral instruction and value orientation.
He said that schools had the wherewithal to teach and impart civic education, adding that members of the family were also a channel to teach values; hence they must be supportive.
According to him, the upbringing of the Nigerian children including youths is the building up of the national future; hence such should be treated with the seriousness it deserved.
