Curbing promiscuous habits among Nigerians through religious studies

  • FN Okobia


The prevalence of inappropriate sexual habit among Nigerian citizens today poses a moral challenge. The idea seems to be that since everybody does it, there is probably nothing wrong with it. It is surprising that many young men and women give reason to justify this evil act. The act of prostitution, adultery and premarital sex has existed since time immemorial and the general public considers it a deviant act which is the act of being different from the popular belief, usually in a bad way. The aim of this study is to discourage inappropriate sexual habit through religious instructions and encourage people to control their sexual urge to avoid sexually transmitted disease like HIV/AIDS which has claimed the lives of those who are too young to die.
