Nigeria is a multi-religious nation, with Islam and Christianity dominating the religious climate. In fact, these two dominant religious beliefs have served as unifying factors in national integration. However, the rise in the level of religious misunderstanding had resulted into numerous cases of intra and inter and religious crises. Religious crises have become veracious and alarming during the past two decades. It is within this context that this paper examines the connection between religion and national integration in Nigeria. It identified some of the hindrances affecting religion in promoting national integration. After the analysis of these challenges, the paper concludes with suggestions towards sustainable national integration through religion.
