Solving Nigeria’s Unemployment Crisis

When the scriptures unemotionally declared “If anyone is not willing to work, then he is not to eat, either,” it created a moral burden. 2 Thessalonians 3:10 AMP. The moral burden is not just on the individual however. The moral burden also falls on the state. It is the job of the state to make sure there are jobs. It’s a policy challenge.


The Future of Nigeria

One of the most potent passages of scripture is Ephesians 1:20-23. It’s a scripture with stark and unambiguous declarations. Yet it’s recondite to some. Because many people read the King James version of the Bible they can’t get hold of the import of the words in Ephesians 1:20-23. They’re lost in the plenitude of overwrought syntax of 17th century English. And some have willingly shut themselves out of understanding through groupthink ideology. They can’t confront the truth of scriptures, won’t see what the Bible says. There’s safety in numbers they imagine. And some are caught in a time warp. They’re trying to replicate the context of the Apostles. They do not realise God has a progressive vision for Christianity. What the Apostles knew was a manifested Jesus. They knew him “in the flesh.” They saw a resurrected Jesus in the flesh. They never saw him in government in Heaven. Only John, Paul and Steven had that revelation. There’s a reason the Book of Revelation is called the Book of Revelation. It pared back the curtain to reveal who Jesus really is. It’s why Revelation starts with the phrase, “A revealing of Jesus, the Messiah.” Revelation 1:1 MSG. In other words forget the Jesus you knew – all that baby in the manger stuff. This is the real deal.

The poverty statistics coming out of Africa has to be scary. Especially when you realise those numbers are people, real people. Nigeria’s population is 195M and we have 116M people living in poverty. Democratic Republic of Congo’s population is 84M. She has 60.9M living in poverty, Kenya’s population is 60M. She has 14.7M living in poverty. Ethiopia’s population is 107M. She has 23.9M living in poverty.


Nigeria: A Little Bit Of History…

One of the most profound realities in scriptures is the fact God does generational batching. We discovered this very early on in scriptures. Those nettlesome Israelites, the slave era generation could not enter the Promised Land. They couldn’t imagine the future. They were thoroughly messed up by slavery, damaged psychologically. They focused on existential – all they wanted was survival. Staying alive was an achievement. Neither could they imagine themselves pioneer nationalists. It was a new generation that did, and those were born in the wilderness, which means they were under 40. The Israelites roamed the wilderness for 40 years. The older generation was wasted. […]

Citizen Action (Part 1)

I am going to tell you a parable. I will facilitate the construction of the edifice of our instruction from an apologue.
