Abstract

Globalization and cultural conflict is in this research effort examined, especially as it concerns the Nigerian context. Thus, Nigerian culture is affected by globalization and those effects are assessed on the people to ascertain the globalization impact. Theoretical and judgmental analysis were adopted and was found that as a double-edged sword globalization has both positively and negatively impacted on the cultural values in Nigerian to the extent that it is difficult because one cannot prove convincingly that average effect is negative or the people are suffering from the outcome of their choice. Therefore, if there is trace of dilution and extinction of our values and socio-cultural heritage; then, there should be a collective blame on every citizen because we still are rational having ability to choose the path to toll or refrain from to resist or moderate to a significant extent the negative effects of globalization on us as a people. It was recommended that to preserve our culture, the first step is to transcend the inferiority complex associated with believing that what is foreign is better and to know the originality we possess as a people that is superior and admired by other nations of the world. Thus, we need to develop potentials that presents us with a new image so that with it, we contribute positively again to national development because in the face of global culture competition, if we ignore and neglect our potentials, our independency and quest for having a significant voice in international frontiers may prove disastrous and unattainable.
