With the present infrastructural breakdown, religious crises in the northern part of Nigeria, joblessness due to lack of plan by our leaders for the coming generation, coupled with credit crunch & global liquidity squize, instability due to frequent change in policy and its attendant high rate of poverty, one is faced with the question "which tribe can rule this country best"?.
Is it the Northerners or the Southerners? Who will lead Nigeria to her blessed above? The country is blessed with almost all kind of natural resources, agriculture and oil; yet the masses keep suffering - why
Simply because we've forgotten God. A tree that forget it source shall surely dry! Enough of seeking help or solution where there's none. Hear Psalm 127:1 "Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain."
Nigeria has abandone the Lord, my country has left the oracles of God. We've gone thinking we can cope effectively without the Most High! This accounts for reasons while various policies have failed. We've set up different think-tank committee who brought in good policies, but because we do not put God first, those policies have failed.
We need to acknowledge our sins as a nation & also as individuals and invite God into our situation. Individuals need to repent of all sins and invite Jesus into their lives . The Holy scripture says "He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy." (Proverbs 28:13).
Jesus said "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. " (Matthew 11:28-29).
Let's all as individuals first, then as a nation go to Christ and He shall give up rest & heal our land.
