  1. Nigeria losing it’s N°1 position as the happiest and most religious nation on earth can’t be far-fetched. On one hand, our government have tampered with religious freedom, that led to Boko Haram insurgent. On the other hand, our nation believed too much in the use of force rather than the show of love and understanding to agitations. The government use of force rather than dialogue and reaching consensus has been a bad example that made the aggrieved resolved into violence as we have the herdsmen clash with farmers.
