Impact of religious affiliation on the alienation of staff from their co-workers in Nigerian universities.

Duvie, Adanma Nnekwu; Ogunsanya, Mobolaji

Abstract:
The impact of religious affiliation on the alienation of Nigerian university staff from their co-workers was investigated in this study. The influence of certain moderator variables such as the location of universities, sex, age of staff, educational qualification of staff, staff category and official rank was also investigated. The instruments used for the data collection were Religious Affiliation Scale (RAS, Cronbach's alpha coefficient = 0.887) and Staff Alienation Questionnaire (SAQ, Cronbach's alpha coefficient = 0.840). The total sample used was 532 members of academic and non-academic staff selected by stratified sampling from six Nigerian universities purposefully chosen. Stepwise multiple regression was applied in the analysis. The critical level of significance used for all the analysis was not greater than 0.05. The major findings of the study were as follows: religious affiliations were significant in explaining the alienation of the total university religious sample (P<0.001), the dominant (majority) religious subsample (P<0.001), and the minority religious subsample (P<0.001) from their co-workers. Also, staff who always judged their success and failures in the system by staff religious affiliations felt alienated from their co-workers.
