"In the name of God, ", the favorite and most used phrase in Nigeria.
God? Do we really need?
With all this religious violence, is it perhaps time to curb religion in the country. Nigeria ranks amongst the world's worst in terms of religious freedom and there's constant tension and frequent outburst of violence.
Nigerians will idly sit around and phrase "god will save us, god save Nigeria, etc", instead of getting up and doing something to make our lives better and improve the community, we wait for a divine intervention that will never materialize.
I think its time Nigeria's government removes all aspects of religion from society, ban formal religious gatherings, and shut down religious buildings, as well the administration of re-education for those who received so called 'religous education' (i.e Alhajis).
Churches and mosques should be confiscated by the government and turned to museums or demolished for the development of other property.
Extreme, indeed, but needed and justified.
