The paper examines the socio-cultural effects of internal migration on migrants’ households in Nigeria. Many factors have been
accounted for the socio-cultural extinctions especially in local languages, traditional occupations and all the likes, but little or no
attention has been given to the impact of internal migration on the current trend of this social phenomenon. A cross-sectional
design as well as a triangulation of economic, push-pull and systems theories was utilized for the study. 160 migrants’
households non-probabilistically participated in a snow ball method of data collection. Pie chart and linear multiple regression
analysis were utilized for the study. Findings showed that there was significant relationship between internal migration and
socio-cultural variables dislocations. Policy implications were made such that programmes that will facilitate socio-cultural
activities at the places of destinations of migrants, as well as discouraging urban concentration of people such as deindustrialization
of urban centres and promotes rural development.
