The Nigerian Society is one of a peculiar nature. In one sense, it is a society that is good on its own but made up of people of varying character and complexities. It is a society where on one hand one will desire to raise up children especially because of her rich culture, on another hand, and especially with the emergence of technological innovations and emerging violence from every quarter, the parents as well as the Church would face lots of challenges in raising morally developed children. Furthermore, the Nigerian society has been seen by internal as well as external observers as very corrupt.
Corruption as a moral issue is a vital societal evil that has so much eaten into the fabric of the home, churches, nations and the world as a whole. The word corruption, means dishonesty, bribery, fraud, vice, sleaze, malpractice,  and  so on. Bribery, private payments to public and/or private officials to influence decision-making, is the most prevalent manifestation of corruption. The issue of corruption today is not a matter of hiding as it used to be years back when in Yoruba language it was called ‘owoehin’ (meaning literally money received secretly) and it is not only typical of Africa. Corruption is now an open affair, which is perpetrated sometimes through negotiation; where the victim has no choice as long as he wants his/her need (s) met. It is very unfortunate. If the above reflect the Nigerian society, we will all agree that the task of the Church in the moral development of children is not easy but it is a task that must be done.
