Lately, Nigeria was in the local and international news again for another unpopular reason. While we were just recovery from the shame that was brought to the entire nation by a 23 year old Yemen based Nigerian, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab who attempted to bomb a United States bound Northwest Airlines Flight 253 on December 24, 2009 on religious grounds; another religious crisis struck in Jos claiming several lives and property. Until recently, it is not an overstatement to say that Jos was one of the most peaceful cities in Nigeria. What could have happened that the peaceful city of Jos lost it glory? The situation of Jos is fast becoming typical of most cities in Nigeria. What can we do to prevent these ugly situations that keep soiling the good name of Nigeria in the international community? Above all, what can we do to stop this incessant blood shed in our nation in the name of religion? Theses are some of the questions we shall be attempting to answer in this post, from a Christian and an evangelical perspective. But first, it would be proper for us to start by looking at some of the socio-political factors that may be responsible for this problem.

Mali is one of the world's poorest nations. Since independence from France in 1960,
it has suffered droughts, rebellions, a coup and 23 years of military dictatorship.
But since 1992, when its first democratically-elected president took power, Mali has had a civilian government.
