Uploaded by: Society For Research And Academic Excellence
Nigeria is a country that has attended giant stride in religious activities; even with international acclaim, yet adjudged one of the most corrupt nations in the world. In fact, the recent rating of the Transparency International placed Nigeria on a high pedestal in corruption index. This poor moral disposition has affected not just the personal lives of individuals but also the general development of the nation. Consequently, the country suffers retardation in virtually every sector of her developmental strides. The aim of this paper therefore is to unravel through phenomenological method of enquiry the immoralities of a religious nation and the negative effects on her development. Findings from the study showed that many Nigerians do not live up to their religious moral demands, which of course, has been a serious hindrance to national development.
