After independence, in order to build a great nation, each nation went to work. But in Nigeria, after independence, our people went to pray and fast.
So, while we were praying, Malaysia came here and took our palm seedlings and build a great factory out of it.
While we were praying, Singapore went into investment in technology.
While we were praying, India went into ICT.
While we were praying, China went to massive industrialization.
While we were shouting Allahu Akbaru! UEA went into massive infrastructural development.
While we were binding and losing Lucifer, Japan went into technological development.
While we were speaking in tongues, Denmark went into the education of her citizens.
While we were mounting big speakers in our places of worship, the USA was mounting man on the moon.
After our prayers, God, being a wise God, decided to reward us according to our labour.
Since those that went into industrialization, technology, infrastructural development, ICT, education etc have been rewarded accordingly. It’s only wise that God rewards us with our efforts in prayers.
That’s why today, Nigerian pastors are competing in building the biggest churches. That’s why there are more prayer houses and worship places than hospitals and schools. That’s why people rush to prayer houses for medical and business solutions instead of hospitals.
That’s why we don’t do business proposals before jumping into business since we are going to back it up with prayers. And when it collapses, we blame the devil.
That’s why it’s a sin to say anything negative about pastors and imams.
That’s why our pastors don’t consider the opinion of engineers while building.
That’s why faith in God replaces building pillars and when it collapses we blame it on Lucifer.
That’s why our pastors are making sure they plant church branches instead of schools on every street in Nigeria.
That’s why we always wait for God to do what we have the ability to accomplish, and he has already been handed over to us.
That’s why we want our teachers to labour on earth and come to heaven for their rewards.
Nigeria is a prayer-loving, God-fearing nation. Religion has taken the place of technology, infrastructure, education and what have you.
When we are travelling, we ignore all the necessary road requirements and pray. And, once we pray, we can put a half-fit vehicle on the road and blame Lucifer if anything goes wrong.
That’s why some educated “bigots” are coming to my inbox to warn me that I am blaspheming against a man of God.
That’s why people are dying on our roads like animals, you have not seen anybody protest.
Because we pray and fast and leave everything to God.
Before you get it twisted, I am also a servant of God.
