Outrage over Secondary school textbook teaching masturbation as Abstinence

A secondary school textbook has been condemned for teaching ‘masturbation’ as a form of sexual abstinence. The book titled ‘Social Studies for Universal Basic Education 7’ (JSS 1) listed ‘mutual masturbation’ as a means of abstinence.

According to Mr Bello Abdullahi, who outed the book on Social Media, Parents should watch what their children read. He wrote;


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.
