A popular Nigerian Facebook personality and business man, Charles Awuzie, has taken to social media to state that Nigeria needs fixing and not prayers.
In a lengthy Facebook post, he noted that Nigerians turn to prayers as the answers to things even when prayers won’t solve the problem.
He also said that people die as a result of poor healthcare services in the country, and because people are too poor to afford the standard essential things in the country.
Charles Awuzie then an experience he encountered in South Africa. He disclosed that he experienced high fever and was unable to walk, and that the South Africa paramedics took about 5 minutes to get to his house after he made an emergency call to them.
He wrote on his verified Facebook page;
“At 1 am, my temperature hit the roof…
I struggled to walk…
An Emergency paramedical team showed up in 5 minutes. Checked my vitals and confirmed that everything is fine. They monitored me and in 30 minutes, the temperature went down.
Besides the thigh muscle pain, I feel better now.
Some deaths in Nigeria are caused by poverty and a poor Healthcare system. I have faith in the South African Healthcare system – although their approach can be more experimental than curative sometimes.
Here’s the thing 👉… It took 5 minutes for a fully equipped ambulance 🚑 to arrive in my home – 5 minutes.
With a functional health care system, you won’t have to call prophets in the midnight when you feel sick – you will phone an emergency medical team.
Religion in Nigeria feasts on the poverty and lack of functional systems in the country.
The day we fix Nigeria, prayer contractors will lose their job.
Thank God for medical science – Tinubu and Buhari jets into London because they know that a functional Healthcare system can keep you alive than the prayers of their religious leaders.
It’s 2:30am now and I need to get some rest.
