A Nigerian parent has taken to social media to show how angry he was finding out that a JSS1 textbook teaches Masturbation as a way of abstinence.
The Facebook user, Bello Abdullahi, who shared photos of the textbook, wrote;
“Brethren, What can we do about this?
Subject: MASTURBATION IS BEING TAUGHT IN OUR SCHOOLS AS AN ABSTINENCE SKILLS
A matter requiring urgent action Can you imagine that a Universal Basic Education textbook, a completely Nigerian initiative for JSS1 students contains lessons on how to masturbate?
It is taught as part of abstinence skills so that nobody will suspect what is going on. If you were going through your children notebook and you found the topic “Abstinence”, you will probably thank God that sanity is being brought back to our children but you will be wrong.
What is taught as abstinence is simply alternative ways of having sex. Below are scanned copies of the textbook page and front cover. God gave the responsibility of education to parents. We me delegate the task but not the responsibility.
We must keep a close watch on what is being taught our children at school and re-educate them in line with scriptures. Please alert other parents and let’s protect our children.”
