    Religion and Politics in Nigeria

    Today's Price £85.00

    Product Description

    From the Biafran war to Boko Haram, Nigeria has been plagued by ethnic and religious divisions since the dawning of independence. Religious tensions have only continued to intensify since the restoration of democracy in 1999, with the divide between Christian south and Muslim north playing a central role in the country's electoral politics, and with Pentecostalism and other religious movements commanding support from the highest echelons of Nigerian society. This book represents the first comprehensive study of the relationship between religion and democracy in modern Nigeria. Encompassing the country's many diverse faiths, Obadare's account looks at how the struggle for dominance between different religious forces has fundamentally reshaped the Nigerian political landscape, culminating in the religious warfare waged by Boko Haram, and the waning of secular identities and institutions. Following the repeated shifts in the balance of power between Christian and Muslim heads of state, from the born-again Christian Olusegun Obasanjo to the Muslim incumbent Muhammadu Buhari, Obadare considers what these developments might mean for the future of the Nigerian state.
