Nigeria is a laboratory for testing solutions to religious persecution




In many ways, Nigeria is the Texas of Africa. It’s a loud, bold, swashbuckling land, where “go big or go home” could be the national motto. With a population of 183 million, it’s the most populous nation in Africa and has the largest economy, and is the continent’s largest producer of oil.
Even Nigeria’s defects, such as its legendary corruption, are larger than life. Despite producing 2.4 million barrels of crude oil every day, generating $50 billion in annual revenue, so much money is siphoned off that the country imports gasoline and its power grid is notoriously unreliable.
In 2014, Nigeria claimed another dubious distinction: It became the world’s largest crucible for new Christian martyrs.

“For sure, it means a lot because there’s sometimes certain things that happen out of your control,” he said after securing victory with a trademark late surge to overcome a trio of Kenyans who had collectively tried to block his path to victory.

 Floor Length Maxi Dress
There isn’t a time where looking for what to wear to church is an easy task because there are a lot you have to consider when trying out outfits you can wear to church. Here are some awesome church outfit ideas, take a look and get inspired.

Depending on where you are going, it is best to apply light makeup, do not go for a night time makeup for church as there is no need for all that attention. Moderation is your best friend when it comes to how you dress and look to church so bear it in mind that you should steer clear of dramatic make-overs so you will not come across as cheap or fake.

I dont hate Igbos

Nigerians being who they are are very quick to conclude and read different meanings into things.

I do NOT hate Igbos.
I do NOT think Yorubas are perfect.
If there is any region I could pick out from Nigeria apart from mine, it would be the North central, not SW.
My admiration for Yorubas as shown here is purely in the area of politics. As for culture and way of life, I respect their culture as a right thinking human being who respects other people's values and cultures. In other areas of life Yorubas have their issues too. But this is politics section so it doesn't concern us here. Besides I'm not the type to bad mouth others while I have my own issues! Do you know innocent children are still being tortured to death in the name of witchcraft in almost all parts of Akwa-Ibom So I will leave my own and start criticizing Yorubas for having the most white garment churches and the Abobaku culture? No I don't operate like that.
