FESTAC 77 THE CAUSE OF NIGERIAN WOES?

FESTAC 77 THE CAUSE OF NIGERIAN WOES?
A christian pastor Prophet Chris Okafor General Overseer of the Liberation City Ministry and  goes everywhere with Police escort has blamed Nigerian socio-economic and political woes on FESTAC 77.
Okafor said the nation’s problem could actually be traced to 1977 “when the then Head of State, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, invited people to bring their idols from different parts of the world to Nigeria in the name of celebrating FESTAC 77.
The idols represented different things. What Ogun, the Yoruba god of iron and war, does is different from what Obatala or Egbesu does. If you are dedicated to Ogun, you are likely to be hot-tempered.“
He said our leaders must humble themselves and go to God for counselling. According to him, President Goodluck Jonathan should call ministers of God and seek their advice, noting: “Just as Obasanjo gathered different idols in 1977 in Nigeria and glorified them, Christians too, with the support of the President, must gather, raise a standard and cleanse the land of all ties and association with idols.”
Was it not at FESTAC 77 that Professor Chike Onwuanchi presented his paper ‘African Identity and Ideology’ as the panacea for Africa’s ills? Have we ever used this application?
The cause of Nigerian woes are the Christian and Muslim leaders that we have. They spend billions of Naira on subsidising the Hajj, Piligimage to Rome and Jerusalem. Building National churches and mosques. All those billions spent on imported religions is more than the minuscule spent on FESTAC 77.
O KA FOR The Spirit is broken should shut up and continue to live on tithes and offerings.Image

  1. We cannot outrightly cut that off as one of the problems militating against the country’s breakthrough, but importantly too, and of course a fact we cannot rule out is that the country is blessed with leaders who fail to understand the essence of leadership, who are so greedy they can negotiate the sale of the country.
