If I Were God

Image result for god


If I were God and
people asked me why I created Nigeria I’ll say I created
it for a reason. I promised
to lead the Israelites to a land of Milk and Honey and I did
. Nigeria is a
land of Milk and Honey but you’re too blind to see it and
trample it under
foot.

If I were God and
people asked me why I allowed the amalgamation of the Igbos,
Yorubas and Hausa
under one roof I’ll say I did it for a reason. People
regardless of their
tribes and religious affiliations should learn to live
together. You are humans
not aliens and your country is big enough for
everyone.

If I were God and you
asked me why I let the killings of the innocents go on
I’ll tell you it’s for a
reason. You do not value the life of your fellow human
beings. To you taking a
life is like killing a fowl for dinner. Perhaps you should
learn to respect the
preciousness of a human life.

If I were God and
people asked me why I allowed evil to engulf your lives I
will say its for a
reason. I created you in my image but you chose for the
darkness of evil to
enter your lives, mostly, to proclaim your vanity. Be
careful what you wish
for; you asked for it and you got it!

If I were God and you
asked me why people are the way they are in Nigeria, I’ll
say I created Man to
love one another and not to hate one another. I created the
Sun to shine on the
righteous and on the bad. I also created Rain to fall on
your friend’s house
and also on your foes house. Perhaps you should learn to
love each other a bit
more.

If I were God and you
asked why my ‘Men of God’ can’t help you or the
country I’ll say I have no ‘Men
of God’ amongst you. Many, since Time began, claim they
come in my name. Are
they my chosen ones? That is for you to
decide!

If I were God and you
asked me why I let the poor and needy to continually suffer
– on a daily basis –
I’ll say it’s for a reason. Why should some amongst you
have more than enough
and others are left with nothing? Unfortunately you
haven’t evolved to the
point to learn how to distribute your vast resources evenly
– that’s for you to
do!

If I were God and you
asked me why I let corrupt leaders rule Nigeria I would say
that is your fault.
If you elect corrupt leaders to high office you get what you
voted for – blame yourselves!

If I were God and you
asked me why I stood by and let the Devil and his legion
enter your lives I will
say that is your fault. You opened your front door and
willingly invited him
in.

If I were God and you
asked me why nothing ever works out in Nigeria for the
better, I’ll say blame
yourselves! I gave you a brain and the ability to discern
between right and
wrong. But since you chose to go the way of Adam, in the
Garden of Eden, that
is your prerogative!

If I were God and you
asked me why I’m not fixing the problems in Nigeria I’ll
say stop moaning and
fix them yourselves! Nigeria is not the only nation in this
world; there are
many others and they fix their own problems. Perhaps it’s
time the nation
called Nigeria grew up and stopped blaming everybody else
for its woes!
