National Struggle in Achieving Sustainable Democracy and Political Stability: Religious and Cultural Issues in View

Adebisi G.M. ADEDEJI, Oladotun ‘Bayode OSANYINBI


All human beings, so to say, are both religious and political in nature. For this reason it could be rightly ascertained that man is a meeting point for both politics and religion. Man is a cultural entity who lives in culture by culture and with culture. Human life is surrounded by religious factors and cultural heritage. Hence, religion and culture have unquestionable roles to play in the political stability of a nation. It follows that, there is no government with democratic ideology that will not experience religious and cultural influences. It is so as long as it is the government of human beings by human beings and it is for human being. It must be noted that for any political government to achieve sustainable democracy, that political government must have achieved political stability. On the same note, a sustainable democracy empowers and promotes political stability. As a matter of fact, for any nation to struggle to achieve sustainable democracy and political stability successfully, the following socio-cultural, religious and political factors must be in place: citizen patriotism, leadership critical thinking, religious and political tolerance, corruption-free attitude, commitment rooted in sincerity and honesty, national protection and security, qualitative educational policy, understandable dialogue and reconciliation, mutual loving and caring relationship rooted in consideration for others, achievable vision and goal, and prayer with faith in God. These are some of the key issues that this paper identifies for discussion. Our submission is that, there will be a democratic political stability in a nation where there is fear of God with proper education, dialogue and good leadership.  Such a nation will flourish, having unity, development, justice and peace.

Keywords: Religious Tolerance, political stability, cultural heritage, sustainable democracy, patriotism, leadership critical thinking, understandable dialogue, qualitative education, and security.
