Africa's youth represent an increasingly important electoral constituency. This necessitates studies on the engagement between socialization agents and youth political behavior. However, there is a dearth of scholarship on these issues in Africa. This study will focus on the courses and impact of religion on political behavior of youth in Nigeria. The research will test the hypothesis that for young people in Nigeria "Pentecostal religiosity" exposes them to negative political socialization, resulting in political disengagement. Primary data will be gathered from questionnaire survey and face-to-face interviews with university undergraduates and past and present student leaders. Secondary data will be gathered from archives and databases in determining the historical, social and political background. Data will also be reviewed in terms of Nigeria's commitments to the state's youth policy. Tertiary data will be gathered in exhaustive research on the linking of religiosity and political participation among youth in Asia and Europe.
