  10. well,in all indication i percieved that all most everybody were question concerning the cause of nigerian problem! and here is the cause it,no1 is the political leaders known of had God in their agenda neither do they fear him that is why they sponsors evils and they sure of going to hell if they die in that condition,no2 our christian leader are no longer in spirit like the people of old and allmost 95.9%of them are bigmanism preachers as their spirit has gone to convetiousness and greed and lack of unity among them that is why God doesn’t answer their prayer,every well bible reader knows that what xtians are passing through in the hands of muslem in nig.is higher than what israelite passed in the hands of ph.of egypt.but due to their holy leaders they were able to overcame the penury,as for ours it is a diffrent story due to love of money, ego ,and diffrent kind of unecessory competition that doesn’t give glory as tink but after said and done may the mercy and grace of GOD be permanent upon our live n jesus
