The Association of Christian Schools in Nigeria may have won its long battle against the merger of Christian Religious Studies with Islamic Religious Studies for lower schools by the country's authorities.

The two subjects were merged in 2015 under a new curriculum called Religion and National Values which ACSN challenged.

Lawmakers and the Christian Association of Nigeria had among others, joined in the fight, but only ACSN sustained its momentum, even petitioning the authorities.

The group on Wednesday confirmed the separation of the religious subject but said it had yet to see the new curriculum.

The new CRS curriculum according to a communiqué signed by the ACSN President, Mrs. Ekaeta Enang and 10 others was printed since July 2018 but remained uncirculated.

The group in the communiqué drawn after its General Meeting on the issue, demanded the dispatch of the new curriculum to CRS offering schools nationwide.

It also demanded to be part of the supervising bodies for the implementation of the new curriculum.
