The wave of ethnic violence and religious crises in Nigeria has reached such an alarming level that, if not arrested, may break up the country. It is against this background that this paper considers the use of citizenship education as a means by which Nigeria can attain the much needed unity and stability.. This paper concludes that citizenship education should be introduced at all levels of education and that if it is carefully and appropriately implemented, Nigeria will be more stable, strong, united and with higher sense of religious tolerance for its citizenry.
