Greetings beautiful people!
I'm sure you're good and smashing your weekly goals🙌
I woke up this morning around 5:00am, I stayed on bed to check on my previous works to see if some upvotes have smiled on them and I was excited to see a little increase on the earnings.
I went to Facebook & Twitter to check on the latest happenings especially on sport and election results. I was able to get some infos about the winnings and losses on some political parties, while some were highly aggitating on the level of manipulations on the election results...yeah, rigging always takes 90% of Nigeria election.
Still on my bed till 7:00am when I heard noises coming from my window, I got up to check and I saw that it's a mechanic fixing a car. The owner of the car was there with him and they were having conversation about the just concluded election.
"...and they'll go and thank God in church for winning when they did heavy rigging" The mechanic said.
Mehn, this statement caught my attention and it made me remember what I experienced some years back.
I think it was the year 2018 or so, when an election took place in the city I was living. During that election day, one particular political party employed armies to take over the city, and chased back everyone that came to vote. Guys, these were not thugs but armies, this is to tell you the high level of command of the political party.
No one was allowed to vote that day and the following day, result was announced that he won. He won without election. Omo!
Everyone got angry but there was nothing the people could do because this political party was in command.
The most shocking...
The next Sunday, the man and his Political group came to our church with goats and food items like rice, beans, oils etc., to do thanksgiving for a successful election and his winnings.
Yeeeey! Everyone was dumbfounded because it looks like an insult to God but what can we do?
A lot of us expected the religious Leaders to stop the thanksgiving but that's the nature of politics... always being politics. People no longer care, the wrongs in politics are now seen as norms.
Sometimes I keep wondering...
Are we sure that God does no longer see these wrong doings by politicians as sins? 98% of the politicians I know are into one bad or the other. I don't mean the kind of bad that normal humans do, I mean their crooked ways.
And at the end of the wrong doings, a lot of them still appear in religious houses and they're well accepted.
Thanks for reading 🥰
