Investors In Death,a Disturbing Norm In Nigeria~revelation Agents Online News by chiboyz1: 7:18am On Mar 04, 2018
nvestors in death is what so people many are in Nigeria and most part of Africa,It is sad but very real and wrong that we are Investors in death.
In a particular place a Man who was diagnosed with an ailment was brought to the hospital.After checks by the Doctors,his brothers and son were asked to bring 100.000 naira but they opted to take their Father away on the ground that there is no money to pay for his medication.Few days later the man died.A befitting burial was conducted for him by the same brothers and his son who refused to pay 100,000 naira for the father’s medical treatment.Thousands of Naira was spent in the burial.
In some cases the dead person never drove a car while he was alive but when the person dies,the person was drove in a Hummer Jeep from Mortuary to the place where the person will be buried.
In another case the relatives of the dead person never bought the person live chicken to eat,but when the person dies the family members will kill so may cows.Infact, in some tribes it is the number of cows killed in a burial that is used as a criteria to know a burial which was societal burial.
In another case the dead person never lived in a good house but when the person dies,the relatives will use three months to build new house before the burial.
It is imperative for us to know that everything will do at a burial we do for ourselves .The dead does not take notice .
What is the essence of a befitting burial without a befitting life.Nigerians invest so much in death.In most cases family members of the dead incure huge debts after burial.Why put yourself in huge debt just to impress people?All is vanity.This is one mentality we need to change as a people.
