Former Governor of Ondo State, Dr. Olusegun Mimiko, has described Nigeria’s existence as God’s miracle.
The former minister said this on Sunday at a book launch in Lagos.
Mimiko lamented the proliferation of prophets, saying prayers without plan and work do not yield desired results.
He said: “Nigeria itself is a miracle for existing in spite of entrenched perversion in the land. In about 100 days in 1994, more than a million persons lost their lives in Rwanda genocide.
“I placed that side by side with the level of perversion, self-affliction in Nigeria, and it became clear that Nigeria itself is a miracle.
“By the World Health Organisation (WHO) figure of 2015, Japan has 85-year highest life expectancy in the world.
“It means that in that country, whether you pray or not, you will spend 85 years on earth. But in Nigeria, whether you are a miracle worker or a miracle recipient, the average life expectancy is around 55.
“Nigerians rely on miracles. We only seek and pray without work.
“As long as we remain a society where everyone is a commodity on the day of election who can be bought with N5000, our miracle will not come.”
