Indigenous Moral Education in Nigeria

Journal of Moral Education 13 (1):56-60 (1984)
Abstract
Abstract This paper discusses moral aspects of indigenous education in Nigeria within the framework of society and religion. The impact of Western education on moral education is also considered. Children experienced moral education from the family, adults in the neighbourhood, age?groups and the entire community through direct instruction, observation of adults as models and unconscious absorption of moral lessons. Moreover, children learned that the gods and ancestors were also sources and judges of human morality, but that God wasthe fountain?head of all human affairs and morality. However, the introduction ofWestern religion and education into Nigeria encouraged the young to pursue autonomous morality
