Indigenous Moral Education in Nigeria.
Obidi, S. S.
Journal of Moral Education, v13 n1 p56-60 Jan 1984
Nigerian children experience moral education from the family, neighborhood adults, peer groups, and the community through direct instruction, observation, and unconscious absorption of moral lessons. They learn that gods and ancestors are sources of human morality. The introduction of Western religion and education encourages the young to pursue autonomous morality. (Author/RM)
