Opinion: Religion becoming FACE of Corruption in Nigeria
Religion is said to be defined as the belief in and worship of a superhuman controlling power, especially a personal God or gods.
sacred texts, holy places, ethics, and societal organisation that relate humanity to what an anthropologist has called “an order of existence”. There are so many types of religion in this present world which includes christianity, Islam, Jainism, Shinto, Sikhism, Rastafari, Paganism, and many more.
A man is said to be corrupt when he engage yourself in dishonest or fraudulent activites, abuse of power when he finds himself such situation, and other illicit conducts.
It is in Africa, using Nigeria as an example, you find a man who looted thousands, millions or billions of Naira depends on the level of access to public funds and will still seeks for his clergy’s permission to build or finish a religious building all in the name of God.
A funny reason why one of my close friend his old church was because he was INSTRUCTED (not persuaded) to bring his first fruit of the year to the church. This simply means giving his January salary of the year to the church as a salary earner. On my friends side, he wondered how he would survive the whole February if he surrenders the whole January salary knowing fully well that the later is always the longest month of the year. From the church side now, if it has 100 members and atleast 50 of them earn something at the end of the month, it will be a great harvest for that month.
How can an Imam who claims to have integrity lead prayer in a personal mosque own by someone who is currently under investigation by anti-graft agency. You know who he was before he join the train of politics, he worth nothing then but worths billions now. He earned that level within just 4 years. Even a deaf and blind person knows that he is corrupt.
