Abstract

The study investigated the challenges of religion and ethnic identity in Nigeria. Albeit religion and ethnic identity give people a sense of belonging, but there are factors that impede their progress in Nigeria. These factors were identified through secondary source of data collections and simple observation. The findings show that ethnoreligious conflict and acculturation were among the factors that threaten religion and ethnic identity in Nigeria. In view of these findings, the researcher recommends that the government should introduce ethnic identity day and inter-religious quiz on moral education to enhance ethno-religious harmony in Nigeria.
