The House of Representatives has urged Governments at all levels to place a total ban on the local production, importation and use of any educational material that promote immoral acts such as Lesbianism, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender, LGBT in schools across Nigeria.

This followed the adoption of a motion by a member from Zamfara State, Hon. Sulaiman Abubakar Gumi, at plenary.

The Lawmaker expressed concern over the influx of foreign educational materials introduced in Nursery and Primary schools in Nigeria which tend to teach and promote certain morals that are alien and inimical to Nigeria’s cherished norms and values.

According to him, the widely used book, ‘Queen Primer’ subtly introduces terms like ‘gay’, ‘eros’, among others that communise sexual perversion and immoral behaviours.

“Cognisant of the need to instil and protect moral values in children and society at large by resisting the use of educational materials that teach or promote any form of alien behaviour which violates the laws and moral values in all educational institutions, especially in the nursery and primary schools,”

These, the lawmaker said exposed innocent children to terms inappropriate for their age, which is unlawful, unethical, highly immoral and antithetical to child upbringing.
