Since the emergence of the nascent democracy inPlateau State, North Central Nigeria has become a permanent flashpoint of violent clashes. The State which had hitherto been one of the most relatively peaceful in Nigeria has been deeply enmeshed and suffused in political and ethno-religious conflicts characterized by genocidal.

Nigeria is a plural state with diverse ethnic and religious groups. Since the transition to democratic rule inJos, Plateau State, has experienced violent communal clashes. Ethno-religious conflict is a form of conflict supposedly generated on the basis of real or imagined “difference” rooted in ethnic and religious identities.

It is “supposedly” because of the need to avoid the essentialism that characterizes discourses on identity politics, especially the independent power assigned to these identities in shaping political consciousness.

Historical Roots of Ethno-Religious Crises And Conflicts in Northern Nigeria: Revised Edition Abstract. After about thirty years of military dictatorship, Nigeria found herself again in the mainstream of democratic governance.

While this development was seen by some people as an avenue to explore dividends and goodies of democracy, others saw it as an opportunity to express grievances, the outcome of which is the occurrence and re-occurrence of ethno-religious and political conflicts.

Nigeria continues to witness incidents of ethno-religious and other identity-based conflicts which tear at its fragile unity and obviate efforts at national unity and national development. Indeed, incessant, violent and bloody riots have become a defining characteristic of Nigeria’s Fourth Republic (Alubo, ; Egwu, ).

This article critically examines the elusive search for a true national identity in Nigeria amid persistent ethno-religious conflicts and violent attacks in Nigeria today. The central thesis of this article is that political mobilization drawn along politicized ethno-religious lines has precluded the emergence of a true national identity in Nigeria.

The broad objectives or aims of this research work are simply to know the meaning and contributions of multi-party system and the development of democracy in Nigeria. And these specific objectives are as follows: 1. To find out the relationship between multi-party system and democracy development in Nigeria.

Political, ethno-religious or social conflicts often spring from the pursuance of divergent ideas, aspirations and interests expressed by a group of people or individuals under particular environmental conditions.

Nigeria, like many African countries, is a multi-ethnic country with over ethnic groups, where Islam and Christianity are the two predominant religious beliefs. If conflict in Nigeria means the absence of democratic behaviour, it follows, therefore, that conflict in Nigeria is interwoven with the absence of democratic governance.

Gurr (): has also shown that the incidence of conflicts at the global level declined in recent years with the deepening of democratisation.

Description Ethno-religious conflicts and democracy in Nigeria EPUB

Nigeria is a multi ethno-religious society with a great potential for social and economic development, although this development is seen by many people as an easy way to enjoy the democratic dividends; others see it as a way to express their grievances.

Therefore, the result is the persistence occurrence of ethno-religious and political conflicts. Furthermore, no religious conflict in the nation is purely religious without ethnicity playing its way in it. Nigeria, as a nation, is bound by various ethnicities or ethnic groups, thus Higazi noted that, ‘the dominant discourses in the conflict refer to political exclusion on the basis of ethnicity and religion Studies on the role of journalists in the Jos ethno- religious conflicts are enormous, but none examines this phenomenon through the theoretical lenses of mediatisation and news framing to understand the logic that underpins the construction of conflict narratives.

While mediatisation describes media logic in news production, news framing suggests the way the narratives which constitute news. Since ethno-religious conflicts are inevitable in a multi-ethnic and multi-religious society like Nigeria, there is the need for government to move from conflict resolution to the stage of conflict prevention; provision of adequate and effective security in each state that will respond promptly to any ethno-religious insurgence.
