The Punishment of God

“I am the punishment of God. If you had not committed great sins, God would not have sent a punishment like me upon you”
The quotation above is attributed to Genghis Khan (the Mongol) who, followed by his murderous grandson Kubulah Khan conquered most of Asia.
It is said that a nation gets the leaders it deserves.
So every Nigerian leader (past and present) can claim the distinction of being the punishment of God to Nigeria and Nigerians. It goes without saying that we must have committed great sins as a people. We keep building churches and mosques, yet we keep worshiping all the small effigyies we keep in the dark corners of our houses. We treat one another like sh**t.
We compound our great sins by continuing to enthrone our “punishments” year after year in our councils, in the legislature, in the judiciary, and in the executive.
Truly, we get the leaders we deserve. So we can let them off the hook when they continue to pillage our wealth, after all we put them there, and as we have committed great sins, we have to bear our punishments stoically.
