Soludo Didn’t Ban Market Prayers – Commissioner

Anambra State Commissioner for Information, Paul Nwosu has dismissed as false certain viral insinuations on social media that the Governor has banned prayers in markets in the state.

Nwosu in a chat with newsmen wondered how a Governor that commences each day with prayers could ban prayers in markets in the state.

“How can Governor Soludo ban prayers in our markets when he starts every day with prayer?

“The Governor starts every single day with either a Mass where a Catholic Priest officiates or a Service where an Anglican Reverend or Pentecostal Pastor presides.

“A man who puts premium on morning devotions cannot ask others not to engage in morning prayers,” he stressed.

According to the Commissioner, what Mr. Governor alluded to which was misrepresented was that traders should hold their morning devotions in a manner that is consistent with their occupation, bearing in mind that customers would have come from far and wide to shop.

“Incidentally, a good number of these customers come from out of the state to sleep over so that they can do their shopping early enough and return to their far-flung destinations.

“But when these customers from far places wait for too long without the market stalls being opened, they sadly leave due to frustration.

“This is not good customer care,” Nwosu added.

The Commissioner urged traders to start every business week on Mondays with prayers and see how blessings will propel all their endeavours. 

“Prayer is the master key that ultimately unlocks challenges they might have been facing in their businesses,” he stressed.
