While lamenting that Nigerian youths were no longer studying History in schools, he advised that the subjects should be restored to the nation’s educational curriculum.

Speaking at the launch of a book, “The Nigerian Century,” edited by a seasoned journalist, Dare Babarinsa, at the Yar’Adua Centre, Abuja, Tinubu regretted that foreign schools in the country were teaching young Nigerians the histories of foreign countries at the expense of the Nigerian history.

According to him, “Most youths don’t know Nigerian history and in 40 years, some of them could be governors.

History should be restored to the school curriculum and this book (The Nigerian Century) should be available in all schools and Nigerian missions worldwide.”

The former Lagos governor observed that Nigeria was grasping with the challenges of change, but argued that through history, the country could learn how she got to its current position and the way out.
