PRAYERS, POLITICS, PROBITY AND POVERTY- REDUCING POVERTY AND MINIMISING INEQUALITY

TO BE HELD IN ABUJA, OCTOBER, 2017.

A National Symposium has been organized to bring together scholars/researchers, practitioners of diverse religious traditions and spiritualities, FBOs/NGOs and policy makers to interrogate how and to what extent various religions and spiritualities in Nigeria engage in processes of economic, social and political transformation. Public commentators often criticize political entrepreneurs and African states of their failure to develop an ethic of public probity and accountability, partly exemplified by corruption and impunity. The enigmas of public transparency and probity can hardly be limited to public governance. We can also explore how religious institutions in Nigeria interrogate, critique, practice or fail to eschew transparency, accountability and probity in the quest for economic and social-political transformation. Religious entrepreneurs grapple with similar issues of leadership, good governance, probity, integrity as a reflection of their wider societies. Ecclesiastical, Islamic, or Indigenous religious polities are situated within wider pluralistic (secular) polities in Africa and are thus mutually reinforcing each other. The significance of leadership and corporate governance (religious/secular) lies in its contribution to prosperity, peaceful coexistence, moral regeneration and accountability. Accountability requires appropriate rules and regulations, doctrines, codes of conduct, values and behaviour to make for viable transformation. For instance, a historical perspective on leadership and followership dynamics can be helpful in the present crisis in leadership in church and secular contexts. The religious groups and missionary societies played a crucial role in the shaping of Nigerian cultures, as much in the colonial period as during the years of the formation of the Federation and the post-colonial era.
