The paper critically examines moral problems and their categories in contemporary Nigerian society. It argues that while moral problems are indeed global challenge, their prevalence, persistence and gravity in Nigeria seem to have defied the solutions put forward by successive governments over the years. Despite the rhetoric about the war against moral vices, the phenomena have so much resilience that immorality seems to have become a normal way of life in Nigeria.
