Description: One major problem besetting the Niger delta is youth militancy. Indeed, the region bordering the Niger Delta has been plagued with youth restiveness and this phenomenon has continually taken a heavy toll on human and material resources, peace and development. Suffice to say that it has given the region a toga of notoriety. Expectedly, one of the pressing and obviously daunting challenges facing political leaders and policy makers alike has been ways of stemming the preponderance of youths who seem to have taken militancy as a pastime. Specifically, the Niger Delta is one of the most research regions in Nigeria and there has a plethora of insightful analyses. However, a major area that needs to be further explored is the aspect of moral/religious education. Given the fact that Nigerians are naturally religious, it becomes evident that providing religious education to youths would go a long way in resolving the phenomenon of youth militancy.
