Religion and politics in Nigeria do not MIX well together. May be its time we seperate the two!

Any other well meaning Nigeria - not in politics - but with relevant experience in brokering peace should have chaired this meeting.

Why is he having a meeting with all these prominent members of the society??? Didnt he (goodluck) accuse the kano state governor of being the mastermind behind the rampagin boko haram menace, he shld hv outrightly ordered for his arrest, dt of-course, is if he has got the balls and will-power to do so! Or was the accusation just a mere political tantrum? Nigerians are tired of all these social gartherings in the name of conferences! We need results!!!

Nigeria! Nigeria!! Nigeria!!! The time has come for you to disintegrate. The more efforts are put in to amend you, the more you are scartering. Let us not continue deceiving ourselves in this country, we can not continue to pretend to be together because the truth remains that we are not together....lets go our separate ways, those who want to islamise their side can go ahead to do so without bumbing innocent citizens. Nigeria can not be peaceful again as a nation, because its our socalled leaders that are stealing the peace, so lets stop fooling ourselves.

this is where we get it wrong. Colonial Mental ism . now. where are the representatives for our own African traditional religion  so those ones have been marginalized to the extent that they dont even recognize them as a people or religion.. at the end of the day, 70% of Nigerians seek spiritual help in virtually all they do and then cover up with Christianity and Islam
