ISLAM AND GOOD GOVERNANCE IN NIGERIA: A CRITICAL ANALYSIS

EMMANUEL A. OJEWUNMI

Abstract: This paper establishes that the religion of Islam is a source of ethics and morality and it should not be a political force. The paper also discusses various perspectives of different schools of thought in Islam to political participation. It further considers the roles that have been played so far in the governance of Nigeria by the proponents of Islam. In essence, this paper will attempt to investigate the interrelationship between Islam and politics. Based on this, the paper has adopted the use of descriptive designs in its methodology and the use of the theory of functionalism to prove the importance of the subject matter in the political dispensation of Nigeria. Finally, this paper intends to prove that the activities of extremists in Nigeria have posed a threat to the continued existence of Nigeria and her sustainable governance before giving recommendations on the influence of Islam in Nigeria polity.
