Ina corrupt. society, where every aspect of it stinks with corruption, it is a necessity for religion and morality to be appreciated and demanded, in order to orientate ourselves and to inspire moral living on the great number of people in the society. In doing this, relevant books and journal articles were used. The findings shows that the significance of religious and moral education on a Nigerian child and youth can not be over-emphasized. It is the concrete foundation on which the building of a society can be built. The nation is Jull of immorality which is reflected in many forms.
