“Evil Spirit Behind Nigeria’s Darkness” – Outrage over Power Minister’s Statement to South African InvestorsPosted on Wednesday, November 28th, 2012 at 2:23 PM
By Adeola Adeyemo
According to Leadership, while addressing members of the African National Congress (ANC), the South African Ruling Party, which led a team of investors to her office in Abuja, the Minister said, “We must resolve to jointly exorcise the evil spirit behind this darkness and allow this nation take its pride of peace in the comity of Nations.”
It is often the case that when people make wrong choices or are caught doing negative things, they blame their actions on evil spirits. However, this statement coming from a Minister gets people confused. Is she literally saying that evil spirits are behind Nigeria’s power problems?
What are your thoughts on her statement?
