Fundamentalism and the Elusive Quest for Religious Peace in Nigeria: A Historio-Religious Study

Ikechukwu O. Onuoha PhD, Francis C. Odeke PhD

The amalgamation of 1914 brought together under one Nigeria two monotheistic religions of divergent views and visions. Fervent Christians aim to persuade all individuals in the world to the lordship of Jesus Christ who one day will return to purify the earth and to reign. Impassioned Muslims envision a military-type takeover of all nations of the earth to restore a united and fabulous Islamic Caliphate under Allah. It will be a theocracy with all in submission to Allah and his Sharia law. This is the prime goal and motivating factor propelling fundamentalist Islam. Terrorism of the kind witnessed in Nigeria is one way to achieve that end. As long as Christians want to evangelize and persuade men to Jesus Christ and Islamists strive to takeover the nations for Allah, there can never be religious peace in Nigeria. Christians in Nigeria are part of the worldwide effort to convince humans unto the lordship of Jesus Christ just as Nigerian Islamist fundamentalists cooperate with their worldwide counterparts to advance the course of Allah. Inter-religious dialogue of the type some Muslims and Christians experiment on in Nigeria is ipso facto a mirage that can hardly yield the anticipated results. The paper regrets the amalgamation of Nigeria and berates its authors for closing their eyes to the dangers inherent in the merger of these parti-coloured religious adherents.
