THEOLOGICAL EDUCATION: RECONSTRUCTING THE NIGERIA’S POLITICAL SPACE FOR NATIONAL DEVELOPMENT
ALEXANDER UDOFIA
Abstract
The paper maintains the central thesis that theological education could serve as a veritable instrument for socio-political reconstruction that would engender authentic national development in Nigeria. The work has the objective of demonstrating how theological education can be optimized into a functional mechanism for national transformation. The research utilizes a spectrum of philosophical methods in its unravelling of the consequential issues associated with the thesis. Three maxims are recommended in this work for cultivation and development by Theologians in the bid to revamp Nigeria’s political turf.The paper admits that for theological education to become socio-politically functional, there is an urgent necessity to rejig the curricula and reconceive theology as a framework for socio-political emancipative transformation whereby the divine will impinge on every facet of the social and the goodness of God will translate to good governance which is the condition sine qua nonfor authentic national development.
