NIGERIA: THE RECKONING
When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn. Like a roaring lion or a charging bear is a wicked ruler over a helpless people. Both hands are skilled in doing evil; the ruler demands gifts, the judge accepts bribes, the powerful dictate what they desire - they all conspire together. Nigerian rulers are like wolves tearing their prey; they shed blood and kill people to make unjust gain. Woe to those who make unjust laws, and to those who issue oppressive decrees. Woe to those who shed the blood of the innocent.
