It is actually disheartening that Nigeria has come to this state. While the rest of the world is busy winning medals at the Olympics, Boko haram is busy scoring points at home. Nigeria is yet to win any medals at home and the last we've heard about Boko haram is that they were responsible for killing about 16 people in a Deeper life church in Kogi state.So while the rest of the world is in London, the Boko haramites are busy at home, scoring their own goals. It seem they have become home grown champions. People who were killed at the church were probably there doing the work of their father in heaven and it's normal to believe he would reward them bountifully for as the scripture says, "Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on" Revelation 14:3.If Boko Haram was representing Nigeria at the Olympics, they would probably have won us some gold or Silver because even the Nigerian team has not been delivering us any till date. Well Boko Haram did their Olympics at home and are already scoring points against the Federal government in a country that is gradually turning to Somalia.We are losing both at home and abroad and this makes many to re-think; what if Biafra and Oduduwa republic had worked? What if Nigeria still remained a confederation? However the truth is that Nigeria has a greater chance of remaining stronger as a united nation than going into confederation or breaking up. So for now, there is no good news for Nigeria both home and abroad. At home, Boko Haram seems to be weakening internal security while abroad, Nigeria seems to be losing her winning image. I just hope we start winning medals soon in London and also provide better security at home too. The Nigerian team needs to score come points and so does the Nigerian government.
