Religion » IS RELIGION THE PROBLEM OF NIGERIA? by: Ogiejoe(m) .:. Thu, 29 Apr, 2021 - 03:49:37:pm GMT
Overtime, there has been an evolution of religion and beliefs from Israel, Babylon, Egypt to Europe like Rome, Turkey and reigned in America and presently Africa seems to have absorbed it all. Almost all the religion now resides in Africa and one country takes it up as real and unreal and of business and that country is Nigeria.

Nigeria is a place of free thinkers and they can be very good at what they do even better than most countries in the World. Talk about Education, Science, Medicine, Technology, Sports etc. Nigerians dominate when they participate and that makes Nigeria a place where if groomed on anything, they excel. The good men are in Nigeria and the Bad men like the Yahooboys who scam people and the likes of the hackers who are everywhere in the globe. That is the state of Nigeria where they are always extreme in what they are into.

Nigeria being very a multi-religious country dominated by Muslims and Christians. I started with Muslims before Christians as Nigeria is now recognised as a muslim country.

In Nigeria, we have the biggest churches in the world and the richest pastors in the world and there is hardly a street without a church. Also, There is hardly a place where there is no Mosque both small and great and in Nigeria still resides the Muslim extremist Called Bok👎Haram and the so called Bandits who have be ravaging the whole Nigerian state.

Because of support of religion, there has been a very strong rivalry between the Muslims and Christians as innocent people have died of this. The Christians may not be fighting the Muslims, but the Muslim extremist kills everyone both Christians and the Muslims who don't believe in their extreme faith.

It is the killings and mal-administration or the inept leaders or should i say that the leaders are not inept. They just have an agenda which either suit religious struggle and getting richer makes the leaders compromise standards.
Right now, The Yorubas are craving for Ododuwa republic and the Igbos are asking for a break out to get a Biafra state and the Northers are requesting for Arewa. It is the Leaders who are holding all together for their own personal gains.
The Yorubas are like 50/50 Muslim and Christians which made them divided in the beliefs and struggle, The Igbos are mostly Christians and the most populated place which is the North are Muslims and because they are in Government, Majority of the high offices in Nigeria are Muslims which has been the reason for the leaders showing lackadaisical attitude towards the happenings. There is more Military impact in the East far more than the one in the North. The Nigerian Army have what it takes to wipe out the terrorist in the North with the airforce only but they won't use the Airforce because there is an agenda and it is a religious agenda. That Agenda is killing Nigeria and they won't do anything because the leaders know exactly what they are doing.

I am seeing everything Happening in Nigeria as a Religious problem where lives are not valued just because they want their religion to overcome. And one dominates and The Northerners in major offices are muslims and they don't talk because they seem to be extremists just like Minister Pantami

The truth is that the problem of Nigeria is so numerous and it can be traced down to many factors but as we are looking at this now l, let's talk about religion as one of the problems of Nigeria.

I so much believe that religion is among the problems that we have in Nigeria because we practice different religions in Nigeria and this has different beliefs.

The religion we practice in Nigeria also affect our economy as a whole because what one person believes is different from what the other believes. With all these we find it had to work as one.

In real sense religion should not come in between us and it should not be an issue at all but we have allowed it to be what causes a setback for us as a country.

What happened is that some people have been brainwashed as they are not allow them to have access to Western education so they brainwashed them and make them to believe that western education is forbidden.

This is the problem, when someone is not educated there will be setback and it will be very hard for the economy to move forward.

@Fashnet:

Yes it is very traceable to the area of religion because the reason why the North and the East are not in good terms is first drawn to Religion. Even as Bible said "Can two work together except they agree? If the beliefs are so different, how can they live together? The Northerners believe that who ever is not a muslim he is regarded as an infidel. So, they may be doing business with you, but they limit themselves so far from others. And the others see their abstinence and also does not trust them especially when death is mostly the end course of it.

Nigeria is not met to be one. they are suppose to be on their own, Their different Entity.

Despite the fact that there is freedom of choice of religion in Nigeria,it will not be out of place to say that religion is one of the major problems in Nigeria.

We here constant talks from different religious groups of the need to c👎exist as one nation. But the truth is that, many people do not believe in the reality of that talk.

We play lip -service to this talk. That's why I call it mere talk.
Everyone feels his religion is the best in Nigeria.

When the white men came to Nigeria, we accepted their education and religion. But when they went to India, the Indians accepted education and technology.

This is why India, seems to be faster in development than we are.
I'm not saying that religion is not a good choice, but we have allowed it to rob us of the gains of development through other sectors.

This is because we have all become individually selfish. Our orientation must change if we as a country must make progress.

@Obajichi:

Actually, the so called Whites bringing religion was not to actually get us saved as some of their plan is to make the people submit to their will as it is easier to tell that what is written in scripture so that the listeners will submit. And on the other hand, the European never actually followed what they brought. Look at their country there is nothing godly about them and that alone shows that their intent was to use religion to control the people to submission.

I am a Christian, but most of the example I look on is the real Israelis which if you study, you will see that there is difference between the two

Religion is not the problem of Nigerian we have choice to choose the religion of our own, I don't think is the problem of Nigerian,but people miss understand some certain things in common .
It is normal to belong to a certain religion of your choice both religion preach about peace,love,and unity.
The major problem of Nigeria is our leaders because they did not care about the citizen of the country.

First when we talk about religion you have to first understand what it mean, what does it mean to have a religion. Religions is a strong belief in the supernatural.



In the modern day world, rite now their is what they call civilization, civilization is a society in a state of advance development. In other words the quality of excellence in thought and manner of living.



Nigeria 🇳🇬 as a country has a lot of problem that it has not deal with. Almost all the country in the world 🌏 is civilization so you can blame the problem of your country on religion except your country is not civilized. But that is not the case of Nigeria because Nigeria is a civilized country.



So I strongly think and tell you that culture or refinement is any country problem, because it can not be cause of civilization.

I could see it in this way that religion is not the problem of Nigeria but whenever anything happens people hide it under religion .
Let even forget about religion now let talk about what happened in our society today,nigeria is a blessed country with different natural resources but we missed used them.

Now the word religion is a believe in God almighty.
In the olden day they believe in the traditional God which they pray to,but nowadays civilization has bring about islamic and Christian religion which both still believe in God Almighty.
Therefore religion is not our problem but we are the problem of ourself look at the high rate of crime in the country both religion preach about peace,unity ,love,onenest,togetherness,but no where to find peace anymore every where in the country is full of evil did ,killing of innocent people all around.

Religionis not our problem both religion already preach about unity so the problem of Nigeria is the wicked once in the country.

There's no doubt about the fact that religion is one of the major problems of Nigeria.
If you take a good look at the killings and the insurgence in Nigeria, u'll realise that they are all traced to religion one way or the others
Take for instance, boko haram terrorist group that has been causing havoc in Nigeria.
They are against western education which against the will of Allah which is not right.
Not until learn to shun regoinism and learn to love one another, we still have a long way to go.

@abbey:

Actually look at what is happening in Nigeria, why are the North against who speaks against Buhari? Because Buhari promotes Islam far more than anyone else. They know what Buhari is doing is bad they are not supporting him because he is a Northerner but because he promotes their religion.

@ogiejoe: Do not blame these Hausas that are supporting Buhari.
This is based on the fact that most of them are still in the dark.
Their leaders in the north has decided to put them in the dark so that they find it very easy to manipulate and control them.

These leaders take their children to school and educate them effectively...
Many attimes, their children are flown overseas to study.
But they fail to educate most of the citizens of the north so that manipulating them becomes so easy.
That is why we have a lot of terrorist group in the north like the Boko haram, the jihad group, the herds men etc...

Religion is not just a problem in Nigeria, but it's a step backwards for us in Nigeria.
Our Religion has lost its ethics morals and values in this part of the world.
Instead of teaching the right values to its members as a whole, most of these religions are after their pocket and also what they stand to benefit from its members.
We have Muslim religions with various Islamic groups of different kinds causing a lot of havocs in the country.
If nothing is done about our religion, it would result in more disasters in the country on the long run.

This is a good write up ,religion is not our problem in this country ,people did evil and then hide it under religion which is not proper .
Our problem comes from our hands we are the one causing problems for ourselves in this country,terrorist attacks church and mosque killing people any how the like.

Those who are saying that religion is our problem also know what they are because sometimes some heartless people destroy things in religion place .
Let work together to improve our country fighting on religion matter is not what we need for now.

We just conclude everything under religion mine why religion is not our problem in Nigeria , Nigeria is a country with different forms of terrorist .
Now saying religion is our problem it a lie , the terrorist make used of religion to carry out their actions are you getting me right example the bokoharam will go inside the mosque and bomb the mosque and also they will go to the church and bomb the church.
They operate under religion what people see is what they react on ,people talk pertaining to physical action.
Mr president support any islamic program more than christian ,but our problem is in the hand of our leaders.

Welcome to Nigeria, a country with so much but so little love.

A country with so many religious practices and despites that the level of corruption is so pronounced.

A country that looks like it is regressing rather than progressing.

This shows that there's need to start asking the right questions about our religious practices....

Religion is part of the problem we are facing in Nigeria , let start from our religions leaders using church as an example if you are not rich no one will admire you in the church ,if you are rich they will give you honour and recognize you.

We also add to the problem of our society we don't like ourselves we put all the blame on our leader which is not supposed to be, many young men turn to pastor when there is no job to do.

Religion is not our problem but we the citizens of the country are the root behind all evil.
