A Letter to God


" />
Dear God, there are so many theories following the outbreak of the Coronavirus. Did you know Lord that the World Health Organizations has declared it a Pandemic? Have you heard that it has killed 22,032 people? Did you know of these deaths You permitted them? Of course, you know. You are God and you know all things; the ones that have happened, the ones that are happening and that which will still happen. I’m not questioning you. I’m not trying to doubt or undermine your powers.

Dear God, many have come with their speculations and theories, they said the end is near but I have been hearing that since I was a child, suckling on my mother’s bosom. We are still here though and the world has not ended. Is it ending for real this time? Is this really the end? You promised you won’t end the world with fire or water, maybe you are going with the diseases option. God, what about those lofty dreams and hopes of mine? Will I still get to achieve them since the world is coming to an end? Father, many have turned their Whatsapp status to a confessionary, saying prayers, asking for forgiveness, with words, pictures and videos. Are their hearts truly repentant? Or it’s just a show off to calm your anger.
Dear God, an asteroid according to scientists might hit the earth in April. People are scared; coronavirus, deaths and now an asteroid. Are these deaths earth’s way of healing itself? It’s no doubt that human and their activities continue to destroy the earth. If I’m the earth, I would have gotten angry and snapped, use cane and chase everyone away to another planet. Global warming, drastic changes in climate, environmental hazard, and the earth is still cool and calm… Or wait. Are you sure this pandemic is not nature’s way of reducing the population of the nations?
Dear God, nations of the world are shutting down their country to contain this virus. Those who have not confirmed any case are struggling to protect their people from contracting it. Those who have confirmed cases are working hard to control the spread. At least 170 countries of the world are infected with this virus; people are infected, some recover, others die. Italy is the hardest hit because they have more of advanced age people than young people. Economies of the world has crumbled, oil price has fallen. Even the almighty America has fallen.
Dear God, Nigeria was not left behind. Our leaders were forming superheroes, they refused to shut our borders and continued to allow flights till they had a confirmed case (which keeps rising daily). They said we are ready for the virus when it was only a lie. Our healthcare system is in shambles. Malaria, HIV and a host of other diseases have been killing us long before Covid-19 got here. Lord, there is something very funny I want to tell you. Do you know that the Chief of Army Staff, Abba Kyari tested positive? He was transported to the isolation center in Lagos. This means that there are no good hospitals with the necessary facilities in Abuja, the nation’s capital. Even Governor of Bauchi State tested positive too. Some politicians and the top men who made contact with them are self-isolating themselves and going for test. Lord did you plan this? For some of those who spent the money meant for healthcare improvement to contact this virus too? Which abroad will they run to now? All of us are stuck here in this abroad we see in dreamland.
Dear God, We are told to wash our hands, sanitize our hands and stay safe. Our fellow Nigerians who understand that liberty is the name of the average man in this country hiked prices of face mask, gloves and hand sanitizer. Lord, they said we should practice social distancing and stay indoors but how can a man who feed from hand to mouth stay indoors? Won’t hunger kill him before corona gets to him? People who have money are doing panic buying and clamouring for a shutdown of the whole country. If the country is shut down, what becomes the fate of the average Nigerian who cannot eat unless he goes out daily to fend for himself. Can he afford the hand sanitizers and gloves? Lord, another gist is that people at the rural area especially do not know about this virus and the safety precautions.
Dear God, Our children are out of school due to ASUU strike, now Coronavirus has extended their stay longer. An idle mind is the devil’s workshop. Lord give them the grace to find something to do while indoors to keep them from evil. Those who are quarantined with their sexual partners, guide them home.
Dear Lord, all I have more questions but I will hold on. God, science has failed us. The Prime Minister of Italy was shedding tears the other day, he said he was tired, that the country has done all it could you stop the pandemic. I hope that of Nigeria does not get to that extent.
Lord, the medics are tired, the scientists are doing their best. Even those who do not believe in you are calling on you. We all are waiting on you.
