Ministry of Education in Nigeria to Merge Christian and Islamic Studies in Schools

The Nigerian Federal Ministry of Education in conjunction with the Nigerian Educational Research and Development Council (NERDC), is working on reducing the workload of primary and junior secondary pupils from 20 to a maximum of ten subjects under the nine-year basic educational curriculum in order to align with International standards.

However, under this program Christian and Islamic Religious Studies, which are separately taught, will now be merged under a compulsory subject known as Religion and National Values (RNV)...... How possible shall this be?
Other subjects brought under the RNV include Civic Education, Social Studies, and Security Education.
