The religious institution can play a major role in ensuring peace and stability in the country because a majority of the citizens listen to their spiritual leaders. Nigeria is a big country with three main religions namely; Islam, Christianity, and traditional religions. One of the things Nigerians do not joke with is their belief. The Muslims go to the mosque, the Christians go to church while the traditional worshippers go to shrine for worship.

It is the responsibility of the religious leaders to admonish the people to be law-abiding citizens instead of inciting them against the government. The economic recession is a global challenge and as such, people are expected to pray to God to come and heal the world.

Any religious leader who incites the people against the government should be arrested and punished. It is necessary to prosecute unpatriotic spiritual heads as it would serve as a deterrent to others.
