Proliferation of religious groups on Nigerian campuses: keeping religious and educational interests on equipoise.

Kayode, O. Fayokun

Abstract:
This paper examined the phenomenal mushrooming of religious groupings on Nigerian university campuses. The paper traced the causal growth of religious groups and their dimensional multiplicity to new fundamentalist fervor and Pentecostal preaching among the youths of Nigeria's two major religious faiths. This phenomenon is a reflection of how religion is becoming more group identity related as well as interwoven into socio-political discuss on the national landscape. The paper identifies the positive and negative impacts of these trends especially with the catalogue of religious conflicts adversely affecting the pursuit of educational interests in Nigeria's higher institutions. The paper concludes by suggesting a clear streamlining of educational and religious objectives being pursued on Nigerian campuses and the adoption of a continuous peace building process cum alternative dispute resolution methods for crisis management on these campuses.
