The House of Representatives has urged the Federal Government to prohibit the production, importation, and usage of educational materials that contain content promoting Lesbianism, Bisexuality, and Transgender (LGBT) in the nation’s educational resources.

This resolution followed a motion by Rep. Sulaiman Gumi ( PDP-Zamfara) during plenary in Abuja on Thursday

Gumi stressed the importance of banning inappropriate educational materials in Nursery and Pre-Primary Schools across the country.

He said the Nigerian Educational Research and Development Council (NERDC) has a crucial role in ensuring quality assurance in national-level book development and local authorship.

He also pointed out the influx of foreign educational materials that introduce values contrary to the nation’s cherished norms and ethics.

In response to Gumi’s motion, Rep. Fayinka Oluwatoyin (APC-Lagos) proposed an amendment, suggesting that the use of such materials after their ban should be deemed a criminal offense.

This amendment was unanimously adopted by the House and referred to the House committee on Basic Education
