“The less diverse a nation is with regards to religion, the better the chances of becoming a producing nation.” – Zubbie Ekwueme
2. “The Europeans, Japanese and Chinese, all have one basic thing in common – each has one religious tradition – Europeans have Christianity, Japanese have Shintoism, Chinese have Buddism.” – Zubbie Ekwueme
Mazi Zubbie Ekwueme made 2 very valid Points:
1. When you have two foreign religions competing for supremacy on your soil like Nigeria does, you are in BIG TROUBLE (Look at the situation in Lebanon to this day!)
2. You can NEVER achieve greatness or progress by copying someone else’s religion, spirituality, cultural values, and ways of life.
You will always remain BACKWARD and PRIMITIVE to the people you are aping and copying.
But are most Nigerians intelligent enough to grasp that?
I doubt it! – Dr. Valentine Ojo
If the Europeans, the Japanese, the Chinese were still depending on God, and waiting for God to “save them”, they would be where Nigerians are today – backward, helpless and underdeveloped! -Val Ojo
The Europeans, Japanese and Chinese, all have one basic thing in common – each has one religious tradition – Europeans have Christianity, Japanese have Shintoism, Chinese have Buddism.
More importantly, the less your Islamic population, the better the chances of becoming a Democracy, a producing nation, a modern nation. According to the CIA World Factbook, about 1%-2% of the total population in China are Muslims. Japan is thought to be less than 1%. In the EU, France has 8%. Britain has 2.6%. Nigeria has the killer 60%. We ain’t going anywhere.
Why is this important? Well, let us start by asking why are all Muslim nations preponderantly 80% or so. Or ask European nations why they are 86% of Christians, even if they are not practising. The less diverse a nation is with regards to religion, the better the chances of becoming a producing nation.
