Muslims and Christians in Nigeria: A Politics of Errors

"You can never vote for a Muslim but you work for Dangote.
You can never vote for a Muslim but all your food na Dangote.
You can never vote for a Muslim but your landlord whom you now owe for six months na Alhaji wey no dey bother you.
You can never vote for a Muslim but your bestie & bunk mate in FGC was an Alhaja's daughter and you never fought for once over religion. You were even best ladies at each other's weddings.
You can never vote for a Muslim but you sit your ass in Malaysia for 10 years and refuse to come home.
You can never vote for a Muslim but you cannot do without Suya.
You can never vote for a Muslim but you dream of doing your wedding in Dubai.
You can never vote for a Muslim but you have aborted for Rasaki seven times and your mother is a deaconess and mother in Israel.
You can never vote for a Muslim but Muhammed Ali is your idol.
You can never vote for a Muslim but your government can collect zero-interest loans of billions of dollars from an Islamic bank to make your life and that of your family better.
You can never vote for a Christian but you work in bank owned by Christians and you never miss Xmas bonus in the office.
You can never vote for a Christian but your doctor of 30 years is a Deeper Lifer.
You can never vote for a Christian but the blood transfused to save the life of your mother was from a Christian you never even met.

You can never vote for a Christian but all the people you are sleeping with are Christians in your area.
You can never vote for a Christian but Tyler Perry is your dream husband.

You can never vote for a Christian but your car and all your gadgets are from Christian nations.
You can never vote for a Christian but not a single item in your house was made in a Muslim nation.
Who are you deceiving? Are you not just fooling yourself? I really wonder why many Nigerians cannot think when it comes to issues of religions. Many are so sentimental with it and smart politicians have identified this weakness and use it to magamugu many Nigerians who cannot just think and ask themselves why the PDP chairman is a Muslim and why the APC chairman is a Christian. Just play the religious card and all common sense will vanish from the brains of many.
The funny thing is that many of these people making mouth on Facebook forget that the same Facebook is an invention of an atheist. Nigerians, wake need to wake up and smell the coffee. 
Our real enemies are the political, tribal and religious extremists who use everything to divide us while they loot under the cover of the same confusion they created, we all have the same enemy. We must wake up and let the world hear of our greatness. It is time for us to transcend religious bigotry and become a nation worthy of global respect. It is time for us to invent something useful for the world and humanity. 
You know, like Facebook that we so enjoy that we even fail to realize it is the wonderful work of a 'sinful' Jewish atheist. Good moreen."

Jenny Chisom's 12 Codes of Conduct for Men That Rivals Any Male Code

It's been a tough past week so I am grateful for Sunday heralding a new week.
I have been burdened to create a Code of Conduct for members of the League of Extraordinary Men (LExM) on Facebook. So while I couldn't attend service, I sat down and wrote this down on my note pad, then typed it.
This came in a bid to begin to restructure the group to ensure it is serving the right purpose and the right men.
