CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1    BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

Religious crisis in Nigeria has been one of the outstanding and disturbing challenges which Nigeria as a country is battling with in recent times.

Nigeria, a country situated in West Africa, has a population of about 167 million. This figure is more than the total population of thirteen neighbouring states in the continent of Africa.

The country is made up of about 300 ethnic groups, some small, some fairly large with English Language as the official national language. Nigeria as Awolowo (1990, P. 35) put it, has over 250 different languages and dialects spoken within its borders and there is also an important religious split, as the North is primarily Muslims and the South predominantly Christians.

These differences in ethnic and religious split in the country has become a bane in the peace, unity, stability and harmony of Nigeria as an independent country. The character of the Nigerian State is responsible for the country’s deepening ethno-religious crises.

This pluralistic nature thus brings about constant feelings of distrust between the component units and the fear of one ethnic or religious group dominating the other is rife. A pattern of largely discernible ethnic suspicion and intrigues that had existed prior to independence has led to  military coups in the past, the traumatic civil war, mutual distrust afterwards, the annulment of June 12 election and the incessant ethno-religious skirmishes that are presently threatening the very fabric of our nascent democracy and national unity.

Tordoff (2000, P.2) asserted that ethnocentric politics, sectional solidarity and primordial interests become predominant features in the nation’s political practices. He further stressed that sectional and individual virtues and interests rather than collective virtues and national interest are advanced and exalted. To this effect, communal orientation precluded any attachment to the state and the syndrome of the ‘son of the soil’ took preference over merit and competence in the choice of political leaders (Tordoff 2000, P.4).

By and large, religious crisis has denied the country national integration. Political instability, disunity and other social and political vices have led to total disfunctioning of all the sectors of the country’s development. Many lives and properties worth billions of naira have been lost as a result of ethno-religious crisis.

Be that as it may, all the security agencies in the country are playing their participatory role to ensure that religious conflicts come to an end. The mass media being the hub that reaches to the people at any given time is not left behind on issues of religious crises.

The broadcast media especially the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA) is effectively fighting against religious crisis in the country to fulfil its social responsibility role. The Nigerian Television Authority (NTA) has ensured adequate coverage and broadcast of issues centered on religious crisis. Keeping the people informed on issues of religious crisis is an indication that the media are performing their watch dog and social responsibility roles effectively.

The broadcast media has always been in a round table discussion with the Federal Executive Council of the Federal Government of Nigeria to proffer solutions and ways to fight against the menace of religious crisis. Media experts and analysts do offer adequate solutions to reduce or eliminate religious crisis in the country. Journalists are always seen at the fore front when it comes to covering religious conflict to ensure timely dissemination of information to the people.


 

1.2    STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM

The peace and unity of any given nation determine the economic and political development of such a nation.  Accordingly, Grinshaw noted that any attempt to understand the development of the independent states cannot escape a study of ethnicity and religion as some of the main challenges to the development of democracy, nation building and national integration.

The situation in Nigeria with regard to religious crises is alarming. The colonial government boycotted the due course of legitimization at its formation and this poses serious consequences for its stability and unity at the present time. It is against this backdrop that the need for effective coverage of the religious crisis is inalienable to the broadcast media. 

The researcher is thus triggered off to ascertain the roles of Nigerian Television Authority as a broadcast medium in creating impact on religious crisis. The researcher also makes certain the feelings of the broadcast media’s audience on the role the media play in tackling religious crisis. Besides, the researcher tries to discover if the activities of broadcast media have helped in the fight against religious violence and promotion of harmony in Nigeria.

1.3    OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY

The researcher in a bit to effectively carry out this study has the following as the objectives of the study:

1.   To determine if the broadcast media play significant role in the fight against religious crisis in Nigeria

2.   To find out if broadcast media play a significant role in promoting religion harmony in Nigeria.

3.   To determine whether broadcast media help to eliminate religious crisis in Nigeria

4.   To determine the promotion of religious harmony in Nigeria

5.   To find out how media audience view the impact of coverage of religious harmony in Nigeria

6.   To ascertain that broadcast media is through in its broadcast of religious harmony in Nigeria.

1.4    SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY

This study centres on one important element that has dampened the peace, progress, unity and stability of Nigeria as a country. The issue of religious crisis has reached a stage that makes people agitate for lasting solution.

It is as a result of this agitation by Nigerians to end religious crisis that the researcher embarked on this study to ensure that Nigerians are adequately informed and enlightened. This information will enable the people to know what religious crises are, their implications, and the need to support the fight against it through the broadcast media. This particularly makes the topic under study unique. Experts in conflict resolutions, government, mass media experts, journalists and students of journalism, all and sundry will benefit from it. Moreover, the material will be used for references especially by students of Mass Communication Department, Kwara state polytechnic when the need arises.

1.5    RESEARCH QUESTIONS                       

The researcher has set out to answer the following questions:

i.     Do the mass media play significance role in the fight against religious crisis in Nigeria?

ii.   Do the mass media play a significance role in promoting religious harmony in Nigeria?

iii.  Have the mass media helped to reduce or eliminate religious crisis in Nigeria?

iv.  Have the mass media effectively carried out its role in the fight against religious crisis in Nigeria? 

v.    Do the mass media exhibit professionalism in disseminating stories about religious violence in Nigeria?

1.6    SCOPE OF THE STUDY

The scope of this study is to look at the area of difficulties so as to find means of bringing them for possible solution and to attempt the attitude of people towards religious harmony in Nigeria.

There is a smooth relationship between the audience and the broadcast media, because ensuring mutual information and communication flow between the audiences and broadcast media goes to a long way to improve the relationship between both parties.

The media’s increase in their method of increasing the spread of information in order to make the audience fully ready to participate in alternative section. The dissemination of information about religious harmony is to ensure a peaceful agreement in the country.

In kwara state and Nigeria as a whole seventy nine percent of the total population have means or medium gathering information from the mass media and this way it may or may not influence people’s decision on the reign of religious harmony.
