In advance societies like USA, UK, Germany, China, Japan, etc, you will see a lot of industries and less number of religious worships centres. In poor societies like Nigeria, Haiti, Jamaica, Liberia, Cameroon, etc, you will see a lot of religious centres and very few industries.
Any country that has more religious worship centres than industries will automatically go poor.
To savage Nigeria economic problem we need more of industries that can go into more exportations and less importations. This will bring more dollar into circulation and strengthen the naira value against the dollar. Unfortunately, while India is exporting technology, Nigeria is exporting religion - Africa is doom.
We as a nation need to look inward because change have to start within.
It is very clear that religion is not helping Africa it is only destroying what we are paying taxes for. We should start discouraging our able body men and women from becoming clerics let them start industries or put their brains into other profitable things. We have had religious centres enough. Let the rest go start industries. Why will our good brains be diverted?
Poor mentalities is affecting us seriously; the more the religious centres the more evil the society is becoming. Sometimes we thought Africa is serving God more than others but we are actually serving the devil if we really search inward. God have mercy!
I think Karl Marx is right when he said religion is the opium of the masses.
It is poverty and bad leadership in Africa that is oppressing us making us flocking religious centres for help.
This is a time to plan. We do not have to continue doing the same thing over and over and expect a change, that is insanity. If we fail to plan for the future, the future can disappoint us.
