#SoundOff: The Hypocrisy Of A President Praying For Nigeria In Mecca

It is revolting to hear about Buhari and our corrupt leaders going to Mecca or Jerusalem to pray for Nigeria. What nonsense! It is them that put Nigeria in her predicaments that need prayers and forgiveness from God and from Nigerians.

Please tell them to go to the holy lands and pray for themselves. Let them pray that God purges them of their wickedness. Let them ask God to forgive them for their greed, selfishness, avarice, pride, arrogance, self-righteousness, vengefulness, hatred in their hearts, divisiveness etc. Their hands are full of Nigerians’ bloods!

Since 1993, there has been a prayer named “Prayer for Nigeria in Distress”. What have changed since then? Misplaced priorities! God is never deceived. He is not a human being like us. He knows what our problems are. Our problems are within us and not with Nigeria.

Tell those hypocrites that are in Mecca to cleanse themselves of their hypocrisy and evils of their hearts before they return to Nigeria. Nigeria would get to her pride of place if those evils of their hearts are washed away and they turned anew.

God would bless them as they do!
