A Facebook user, Michael Nwanator Jr, has said that it’s better to be an atheist than to practice the two main religions in Nigeria, Christianity and Islam.
The Facebook user claimed that Nigeria is the most religious nation yet the poverty capital of the world.
He also backed his claims by giving the percentage of Nigerians living below the poverty line.
He said less religious countries prosper compared to Nigeria adding that the country is 1,000 years behind China and Japan.
Read his Facebook post;
“I think it’s better to be an Atheist than to be an average Nigerian Christian and Muslim.
Nigeria is the most religious nation in the world and the poverty capital of the world. Over 91 million are living below poverty line.
Over 91 million people are EXTREMELY POOR. The number keep increasing everyday.
Nigeria 🇳🇬 is attributed to anything bad in the international community.
Less religious countries prosper than us. To me, Nigeria is 1,000 years behind China 🇨🇳 and Japan 🇯🇵.
If religion can’t make us live a morally upright life, what use is the religion?
What do they teach in religious gatherings in Nigeria 🇳🇬?
I don’t think there’s any Atheist holding a top government position in the country🇳🇬. On Friday and Sunday, you will see them in their various religious places, but why are we in this mess? I need answers.”
