A Nigerian governor who defected to the opposition party, while serving as a Speaker of the Nigerian House of Representatives, to actualize his quest to become a governor has discovered the best governing tool – prayers. Africastallestman wholeheartedly agrees with him, but there must be goals with severe penalties for failure.

The crime rate in Nigeria is high and unacceptable. The underlying causes are economic, fueling unemployment, corruption, religious diversion of scarce public resources to private pockets, nepotism, tribalism, quota system of rewarding incompetence, and inept governance. Nigeria’s two options for solving its problems are political or praying.

Our governor will be given wide berth to design his prayers. If every Nigerian has to convert to one religion to actualize his solution, so let it be. If the problems still persist after the nationwide prayer orgies, he will have to pay a heavy price.
If his praying solution works, he should be awarded a Nobel Prize and his brand of the prayers written into the Nigerian Constitution.
Africastallestman also sees a big export market for Nigerian prayers and prayer warriors.

The other option is political. Everyone comes to the bargaining table loaded with pragmatic, progressive plans while leaving self-serving, sectional, prejudiced, and primordial plans at home. If this option fails, at least nobody gets ripped off by religious charlatans.
