  1. Religion is supposed to spread the doctrine of peace, love and mutual affection, but unfortunate the foreign religion from the Middle East has brought so much pain, sorrow and anguish to Africa
    The Europeans and the Arabs came to Africa with the bible or koran in one hand and the sword or gun in the other hand to demonise everything African
    But what they never told Afticans was that their own religion which is full of their culture, tradition and mythology is no better that the religion of our forefathers who had already known about the existence of Olodumare or Chukwu before the advent of foriegn religion
