Religion as a Repository of Nigeria National Communication Policy Israel Udomisor

Israel Udomisor, S.P E. Akoje


Religion and communication are pervasive globally. In Nigeria, efforts to accommodate religious plurality in the face of Modern Mass Communication have led to the formation of policies to guide the conduct of Mass Communication. This is with the view of minimizing conflict or clash of interest of people, especially those with different religious conviction.

An explorative study of these policies, both written and unwritten, reveals that they are religiously derived. This paper identified a number of ways in which religious actions and inactions; religious leaders’ statements as news sources; religious believes derived from holy books serve as sources of communication policies, guiding the behavior of Mass Communications in their business of communication in Nigeria.

Keywords: Religion, Communication, Policy, National.
