Upon reading this news report, I didn’t understand why Nigeria is so corrupt… but I have hope that as long as Jesus continues to raise up His People to stand against injustice, there is a fighting chance. Ultimately, one day, Jesus, the Perfect Judge, will turn all things to right. I wrote this poem to express my frustration, but also to look to hope.
“Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute.”
(Proverbs 31:8, NIV)
