Reasons Why You Should Pray For Nigeria

Nigeria is a country that is blessed with a quite number of natural resources. The population of the country is estimated at 178,516,904 as of 1st of July, 2014.

The country is battling with a lot of challenges ranging from terrorism to corruption and internal violence.

The terrorist group existing in Nigeria is referred to as Boko Haram.

The Jamaa’atu Ahlus-sunnah lid-da’wati wal jihad, popularly known as Boko Haram is a strong pseudo-Islamist terrorist group, which was speculated to have its base in Kanamma, North-Eastern of Nigeria.

The group’s name “ Boko Haram” is a Hausa statement, which when translated into English Language, means “Western education is sinful”.

This group is opposed to everything that is of Western origin, more especially Western education, ideologies and systems, such as democracy and others.

The group became popular in 2009. It has carried out major attacks in the various part of Nigeria.

More than 10,000 people have been killed Churches burnt down and property destroyed.

An attack similar to those of Boko Haram took place on the 13th of November, 2015 in Paris, France. It has been widely broadcast in social media sites notably Facebook.

Nigerians have changed their profile pictures to that which consists of the France National Flag.

We have lost scores to Boko Haram and I have never seen Nigerians demonstrate concern the way they have to Paris today.

I am not or will ever be against those praying for Paris. In fact it is our duty to pray for the world's peace. But it saddened my heart that I have never seen Nigerians showing this kind of attitude when a tragic event like this happens in Nigeria.

Charity they say begins at home. The numerous Nigerians that have been victims of Boko Haram exploitation either dead or injured, has become a normal news to we Nigerians. Its no more a big deal as it is just like saying Arik Air just landed at Lagos airport (Very Normal).

Please before you claim to be current with the Paris Terrorist attack of 13th November, 2015, Kindly take a minute and pray for your fellow Nigerians going through hell in the North Eastern part of our dear country Nigeria.

Nigeria, Good People, Great Nation!
