Religion has failed Nigeria in a sense. But since commerce, not religion, rules the world, problems will persist because economic laws dictate interactions outside the Church.
These were the sentiments of Professor Hope Eghagha, the former Delta State Commissioner for Higher Education, who spoke to journalists in Warri during God’s Kingdom Society, GKS’ Christian Feast of Tabernacles.
According to the don, “religion has not reformed and refined many Nigerian leaders. So, in that sense it has failed us, as the levels of evil deeds and criminality show.
“However, outside the Church, organised religion lost control to the laws of commerce and economy. But in the end, God will be the judge of all those in leadership positions.”
He urged every Nigerian to be guided in all things by the reality that time on earth is limited.
