Abstract: This work focuses on structural conflicts and constitutionalism in Nigeria. The research shows that structural conflict is endemic in Nigeria. The work gives many examples of this action as they occur. Constitutionalism on the other hands, is a commitment to the laid down rules. Constitutionalism seeks to provide for a politico-economic order that is inclusive, equitable and responsive to the divergent interests in the society through the instrumentation and institution of limited government. With this, the paper identifies structural conflicts as a major peace and security challenges confronting Nigeria and identifies the potentialities of constitutionalism as a Preventive, ameliorative, and curative mechanism for new and emerging threats to peace and security in Nigeria. The paper concludes that to achieve a compliance with the dictate of constitutionalism that can put an end to structural conflicts in Nigeria, the government will have to make it a deliberate action, such as evolving a mechanism where technocrats would be empowered to ensure compliance with ethos of constitutionalism that will guarantee a country free of structural conflicts.
