In a normal country heads should roll after over 50 people lost their lives when a church collapsed in Uyo, but Nigeria is not a normal country.
The auditorium was said to be full to capacity during the consecration of its Pastor as a Bishop when it collapsed.
The state Governor, Emmanuel Udom, however, escaped death as he was billed to attend the event, but he was not at the church when it collapsed. Oh praise Jehovah.
This is the second time in two years that a church building will collapse and take the lives of innocent people who just came to worship God. In 2014, a building in T.B Joshua's church premises collapsed killing 115 people.
Today, the man of God (is he really?) who predicted a woman would win the US general elections (maybe Donald Trump would have a sex change before swearing in) is walking around freely, performing his questionable miracles in front of gullible Nigerians. It seems the God of T.B Joshua approves of manslaughter and murder.
Now we have a fresh case on our hands. 50 people who came to the Lord's house have had their lives snuffed out because some church officials most likely gave a crooked person the contract to build the church. Hell, the church officials might have even collected their percentage from the contract.
However, guess what? Nothing is going to happen. This is Nigeria. The collapse of the church in Uyo would be tabled as the work of the devil. An emotional service will be held where the perpetrators of this dastardly act will cry their eyes out and sings solemn worship songs. A pittance will be paid to the families of those who were killed and nothing will be done.
Three months from now, the Pastor of the church and the top officials will move on like nothing ever happened. They will feed fat on the tithes of poor and gullible Nigerians. Most importantly, they would be allowed to roam free with blood on their hands.
The only way justice can be served is if the Governor has died in the church. This might sound harsh but that is the truth. If his Excellency had lost his life, the outrage and cry for justice would have reached the top of Mount Zion.
In Nigeria, it is only when a politician dies in a road accident does the government know that the state of roads is bad in the country. It is only when a politician is killed by armed robbers that the government knows that crime is a big issue in the country. Nobody cares until a politician is affected.
To the 50 people who died, their only crime was that they were Nigerians. This is a country where justice will not be served. A fake committee will be set up to investigate but nothing will come out of it.
There is blood in this house of God. Who will serve justice? Surely, not the politician who kneels before a pastor with blood stained hands asking for blessings while he is in office.
