Wealth creation and religion

This is nothing we haven’t heard before, but sometimes message sinks in better when we all see and hopefully points raised can help to reason together.

I strongly believe all of the factors mentioned in the video are spot on for Nigeria.

See what the narrator said on corruption and offshore accounts in 1:29. Yesterday another news was flying around about Switzerland releasing Abacha’s loot of $400m minus $79m fee charge. Nigerians were questioning Switzerland decision of charging that much fee. It is not easy to conceal stolen fund. Switzerland fee is called Owo omogo (fee for being ignorant). They didn’t come to Nigeria to snatch our money, it our own people who went out of their way to hide their loot.

If we are so hurt, we will all work together and choose better leaders in future.

2.40 is about religion – “the less people believe, the richer they stand the chance of being”

In Nigeria religious issue is slightly worse than many other countries because population is almost equally divided so now we have Christians working very hard to match up whatever the north is up to in Muslim world – they have won the fight over pilgrimage now. If the north decide to waste limited resources on pilgrimage so are we in south. We are even. Lucky for Mecca and Jerusalem, they’ve got committed tourists for life.

Another news going around is that Nigeria Christians (interestingly a senator from Plateau sponsored the bill) are working to pass a bill for their own christian court too so we can be on par with Sharia Law. I hope this one passes too.

It sounds insane, I know but this one may be the last straw that Nigerians need to finally realise religion and governance can not work together, not here in Nigeria at least.
