Social Media as a Bastion for correcting moral Ills in Nigeria: A Focus on Educational Decadence

Hyacinth Chimene Orlu-Orlu, Barigbon Gbara Nsereka


Worried by the soaring incidence of moral  decadence in Nigeria’s educational system, this paper takes a look at how the social media could be used  to enhance the  efforts made  to correct the social  ills in  the society, particularly education-related offences. To accomplish, this objective, the paper discusses the fading fortunes of moral living in the Nigerian society, stating the various  forms of immorality which are caused by corruption and indiscipline, bred by greed.  The work views the cyberspace as a zone of opportunities;  ex-rays the immoral posture of Nigeria; states the strengths and  weaknesses as well as the pros and cons of the social media;  portrays immoral acts as  mountains to be demolished for  moral conduct to prevail among Nigerians, especially the youths; and describes the  social communication networks which are  put to the most use by the youths, the target audience of the book, as a potent instrument for correcting the moral ills of society.

Key words: Social media,   Bastion, Educational decadence,  Moral ills,  Nigeria
