ELECTORAL VIOLENCE IN THE CONTEXT OF RELIGION AND DEVELOPMENT IN NIGERIA
Electoral violence, which is an issue in national development, has become a culture in Nigeria as every election conducted so far in the history of the country was marred with violence of various magnitude. Given its nature and effects, literature abounds on the subject from political, sociological and economic perspectives. However, much has not been said about the stance of religious ethics on electoral violence. Therefore, this paper discusses electoral violence in the context of religion and its implication for sustainable development. Since electoral violence has been the bane of political stability and development, application of religious moral values is considered to be a veritable tool for ensuring violence – free elections, which will ultimately impel the ever obscure development in Nigeria.
