Football as distraction
Nwanze said football is used too often to paper over the political cracks in the country. “We saw this during the last Afcon [Africa Cup of Nations]. Nigeria is a perennial semifinalist at the tournament, yet the moment they qualified for the second round all sorts of government officials, including the central bank governor, began to try to use the Super Eagles to play politics. They try to use them to distract from the problems we are facing back home.

Jesus didn't die so we could have religion. He died so we could have a deep, intimate, personal relationship with God.
