The actor took to Twitter to implore Nigerians to have a rethink about religion being our problem. According to him, the average Nigerians should use the same yard stick used in judging religion’s place in Nigeria’s predicament, to judge their lives as well.
He said religion is the only reason why people haven’t murdered each other. Stressing further that religion gives people succor and comfort when they are aggrieved or denied their rights, noting that if people were made to face the full consequences of their evil actions, they would change their narrative.
In a series of tweets, Femi Jacobs wrote,
“Religion is our problem. Religion is our problem. Well, maybe. But religion is probably the reason your house help has not stabbed you. Or your wife has not shot you in your sleep.

Leave the people be. If you make them face you for answers you’ll know why God is God. Religion is the people’s…hian. Think am.”
