Ease let us put Oga Kadiri's "prayers" in oerspective. If you consider the level at which our collective patrimony has been stolen by those who are supposedly leaders, then there is no point trying to be saintly with these people. They are thieves, simple. And outside of a revolution that will strike them off our national picture, the best we can do--the last resort of the powerless--is terrible epe; sending Soponna (the god of smallpox) on a terrible errand.
These people do not need prayers; they need the most calamitous things to befall them as an example for others. Haven't they impoverished us all without any regard at all?--
