Have u considered the huge Christian population in the north?

Check these middle beltan states like: Plateu, Benue, Nassarawa, Niger, Adamawa even some places like Kaduna south etc, in fact, don't be deceived, there is a huge Christian population in every nothern state, not to talk of the middle belts who have Christian majority. Unlike the south that only have muslim's population down the Swest, the rest of the south are almost 99percent Christians ( SS & SE ) and remember that the SW is almost the home of Christianity in Africa, cause that's where we have some of the largest churches and congregations in the world.

So if u consider all these, u will realise that this statistic is very wrong, some of us have know this for long, that's why u will see that the northerners are not always comfortable with census, they will always look for way to manipulate it so they can portray Nigeria as a muslim's country, that's a very big lie.

Why do u think they want to systematically reduce Christian population in the north?

Pls wake up don't deceive yourself, muslims are not more than Christians in Nigeria!!!!

The people whose religion you borrowed have a ''holy book'' FILLED TO THE BRIM WITH MASS MURDER, HUMAN SACRIFICE, RA.PE, INCLUDING MASS RAP.E, AND INFANTICIDE AMONG OTHER ATROCITIES ORDERED BY THEIR TRIBAL DEITY, yet those people were able to 'modernise' that same religion, ''whitewash'' it and hand it to you as ''holy''. ''The word of God'' no less.

Why can't you do the same with YOUR traditional religion, INSTEAD OF BEING A SHAMELESS, INFERIORIZED COPYCAT WITH NO SENSE OF DIGNITY OR INDEPENDENCE?

10% cant be atheists, if they were, then we'd have 15 million atheists in Nigeria, I.e 10% of 150 million. So 10 % are traditional worshippers. Atheists makeup about 0.0001%. According to world atheist censures, only 276 atheists are from Nigeria

Without missing words, Christians account for over 65% of Nigeria population.

Majority of Northern muslims are very much aware of this.

This, as a matter of fact is one of the reasons for their frustration and bitterness which is often demonstrated in clashes with Christian communities in the north.

They know that southern Nigeria is completely dominated and feels uncomfortable with the way they are constantly loosing it even in the north.

- Geography shows its impossible for the north to be more populated than the south.

- Logic of people running away from desertification, shows it not logical for the north to be more popular than the south or Middle Belt (Onitsha, Aba, Ibadan, Port-Harcourt, Lagos, Ife, Abeokuta, Jos, Lokoja,  etc),

- Satellite Imagery shows that the north is sparsely populated and contains a lot of dry areas not suitable for human habitation, hence where does it large population come from.

- Economic wealth of the south indicates that most people would be concentrated in places like the South  (Onitsha, Aba, Ibadan, Port-Harcourt, Lagos, etc).

All these raised points above dictate that the South is simply has to be more populated than the north from all accounts.

- The middle belt is taking to be part of the north, yet the middle belt is split between muslims and christians.

- The core north is not monolithic, instead it only has a majority muslim population there are still Christians. Otherwise you would not be hearing reports of muslims killing Christians in the north for no reason other than they are Christians.

In conclusion,

Nigeria[b] does not [/b]have 50% Muslim,

Nigeria does not [/b]have 40% Christian

Nigeria[b] does not [/b]have 10% Atheist

[b]Nigeria has never had an accurate census figure - British intentionally/falsely made the north more populous on paper but not in physical reality. The North has been manipulatiing census since then onwards.

Hence all these percentage figures being quoted are completely false and baseless. No one knows what the true figures are. People can only infer what the population of an area and group of people might be in terms of political, geographic, economical, religious, socio-cultural and satellite imagery factors, i.e. the falsification of census figures over the years in favour of the north and muslims, means that[b] true census figures[/b] can only be estimated based on inference from factors stated earlier.

Thus by inference using the points raised earlier, its clear that logic and common sense implies that Nigeria is actually a majority christian country , despite that Census figures have always been manipulated and doctored to favour the north and indirectly favour muslims in general.

Christians are not violent by nature, hence the reason you have not seen christians publicly claim a right or priviledge based on the fact that they are more populous in the country.

Unfortunately muslims tend to be more susceptible to violence and domineering by nature hence the need for them to falsely claim majority population just to try and seek to gradually try to claim that Nigeria is an islamic country, which it is not.

Instead Nigeria is actually a majority Christian Country. Christians never claim Nigeria is a christian country despite that we are a majority, because such trivialities do not really matter and christianity is not about domination of non-christians even though the same cannot be said of muslims and their attitude.

Muslims and the North in general were scared of getting this truth exposed during the last census, hence the reason why they made sure that issues like Religion and Ethnic were not included in the information that would be made public via the census.

So with respect to the can u

@poster , based on the above raised points, you would  well to make sure that you get your facts correct before you post any nonsense.

That statistics is wrong by the way.

The south is more populated than the north in real figures

There are more Christians in the south

Many northern states like Kogi,Benue,Kaduna,Plateau former gongola have a sizeable Christian population

There are more Christians than Muslims in Nigeria

Don't mind the falsified figures by the "owners of Nigeria"

remember that Kano is supposedly more populated than Lagos state

We know the truth.

i think the servile nature of some Nigerians and not religion is the problem.

hospitals are still pretty much foreign in Naija

and while there are the negatives to traditional "religion", they were quite a number of positives that many of us use today despite being in immense denial

The fact that our fore fathers practised something doesnt make it right i guess.

Our fore fathers practised a whole range of things and sacrificed humans, virgin girls slaves and a range of traditional things. Do that today and you will rot in jail. Time has moved on and there is nothing foreign in religion. Chrisitianity isnt a thing of the west as the first followers of christ were jews and in the middle east.

why do we accept science and practicse science i guess that is foreign to africa as well, why do we use hospitals, live in modern houses and not huts etc .

and how is it any better than so called churches/mosques committing fraud and having people lose so much money in the name of "miracles"

Nigerians seem to be very receptive of "foreign" religions. Islam,Christianity,Budhism,Hinduism,name them; are all borrowed religions.Why can't we practise something that was originally handed down to us by our ancestors?

Religion will not take us to Heaven; our virtuous will.Lets try and be good and shun 'borrowed' religions. Afterall,these foreign religions are only introduced to suit followers located in a particular geographical entity (Arabia, Middle-east,India,China,etc).
