“Nigerians spend too much time praying instead of actually working” – Doyin

Big Brother Naija two-time contestant, Doyinsola Anuoluwapo David, otherwise known as Doyin, has criticised Nigerians for their ‘over religiosity’.

According to the controversial reality TV star, Nigerians spend too much time praying when it has no direct effect on the development of the nation.

Doyin said in a post on Snapchat that she doesn’t believe in religious programmes and that time people exhaust while doing ‘Hallelujah Challege’ would have been better spent working to get the desired society.

She emphasised that if prayers and religious programmes were what a nation needs, Nigeria would have been one of the greatest countries in the world.

The medical radiographer made the remarks while responding to a fan who asked why she never connects to any of the religious programmes online.

Doyin wrote: “I get a lot of those hallelujah challenge and what God cannot do doesn’t exist tags. People keep sending them to me but I just don’t believe in that type of stuff so I never join. It’s not bad… I just don’t believe in it.”

She added: “If it were really by ‘hallelujah challenge’ and ‘what God cannot do’…..Nigeria should be one of the greatest countries by now. We spend too much time praying and shouting hallelujah instead of actually working and being actual good human beings.

“They will shout hallelujah finish and go back to cheating the next person they encounter or judging someone because the person presents themselves differently.

“To me, it’s just a complete waste of time but to each his 0wn. If you believe in it then by all means. At the end of the day, all that should matter is having a good relationship with God and being a good human being.

“If you like, shout hallelujah from now till next year. If you don’t find ways to improve yourself and provide value….you’ll keep shouting hallelujah in hunger.”
