Abstract

In the Nigeria’s presidential democracy politics of 1979, 1999 and 2003 the Igbo Church hierarchy tried to sanitize politics and elections in Igboland. The Church in addition to the homilies to enhance the quality of its members participating in the electoral process, also employed the print media as a potent political tool in the elections. The institution was also known to have embarked on elections monitoring and observation with its trained field officers or monitors. This work assesses how far the Igbo Church in Igboland enhanced, through the use of the media, pulpit homilies, election monitoring and observation the prevalent cesspool political culture in Igboland during the presidential democracy politics and elections of 1979, 1999 and 2003.
