The Major Cause Of Poverty In Nigeria


The major causes of poverty
nd income inequality in
Nigeria's economy is the love
for property which make men
to be very stingy and greedy.
In furtherance to this, since God has provided for those
that is over their needs, it is
expected that such surplus
should be redistributed. But
our dominat class in Nigeria
will began to perpectuate their dominant over us and as well
as to protect their lovely
property and illegal acquired
wealth, while the less
previllege class will submit
themselve to their stream of dominance like the grain of
gold in the sand of a river nd
not thinking of how to revolt
against the action, in relation
to this, poverty has removed
the teeth of a lion and leave him unteeth. All we need is
revolution.

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
