One of the unfortunate and biggest plagues to Nigerian political development is this myopic notion built into a national psyche that this "GOD" gives power. How damaging this has been for Nigeria, and the worst case is the fact that this nonsensical theory had been peddled and promoted by the so called educated Nigeria.
Which country in the world would you look at and say that their government is a Godly government? (whatever that means) In fact, the closer govts claim to be to God, the worse they are, example is Iran. Then compare that to the Chinese, whose believes in a God is not their cup of tea or the old Soviets that ban religion al together.
What kind of God made Hitler, Pinochet, Mussolini, Idi Amin, Jean Bokasa, and Samuel Does of this world a leader? If I want to be indulged, I will say that it is Satan that makes world leaders. Jesus say his govt is not of mankind, so where did Nigerian got this silly, deceiving and cunning idea that God ALMIGHT in heaven choose world animalistic leaders, especially the Nigerian ones. What kind of God will line up Abacha, Abdusallam, Obasanjo and now Yar Adua in quick succession for one single nation?
God has nothing to do with human Governments as time and history has proved that. Nigerians so deep in deceiving themselves has coined this theory and all the rogues ruling elites themselves has always used it to justify their evil ascension to power or a hold on to power too and their victims (the populace) has used it to swallow every rubbish pushed down into their throat in form leadership.
