Activist and Lawyer, Reno Omokri has shared his opinion on how poverty affects religion.
According to him, when religious people relocate abroad and realize that their prayers are easily answered there, they abandon their religiosity.
Furthermore, he added that religiosity is a reaction to poverty, and people become less religious once their prayers are answered.
"Poverty is why many people are religious and churchy. When these same people relocate abroad and see that their prayer requests are easily met in their new locations, they lose their religiosity.
"Religion is a reaction to poverty. Faith is a more reliable judge of Godliness.
"That is why after salvation, Christ taught more about wealth. Because without wealth, your spiritual health is at risk. Poverty alters your perspective.
"You make enemies out of innocent people. You blame ancestral curses and village people for your poverty, when in fact the problem is your location, which is overpopulated and underfunded.
"And fear of enemies, rather than love for God drives you to church,” he said in an Instagram post on Tuesday.
