Why is there religion in the first place?

It’s not only Nigerians who look up to perceived higher beings for their problems.

It’s a common trait amongst humans to look up to their God or god on things they can’t control neither understand.

I lived with people who served sticks as gods, they were in dire need for protection, something to shield them from their perceived enemy, or some higher power to bless them with wealth.

Nigerians have prayed and Keep praying for change, it’s time we support those prayers with serious work not just for ourselves but our country.

“My God is not a poor God!” okay, I agree. But why are you starving?

Be ye wise as serpent!
