The Anambra State Commissioner of Information, Hon. Paul Nwosu has debunked the rumours making round that Governor Chukwuma Charles Soludo placed a ban on prayers in the markets.

The commissioner who disclosed this in reaction to online insinuations that the Governor has stopped Traders from praying said that “Governor Charles Chukwuma Soludo, CFR, did not ban prayers in our markets.”

Mr Nwosu queried the possibility of the Governor putting an end to prayers inside the market when he starts his day with prayers “How can Governor Soludo ban prayers in our markets when he starts every day with prayer?” he asked.

The Commissioner told this reporter that 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,” Sir Nwosu stressed.

The Commissioner explained that 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,” Sir Nwosu informed.

The Commissioner urged the traders to start every business week on Mondays with prayers and see how blessings will propel all their endeavours. Prayer, he said is the master key that ultimately unlocks challenges they might have been facing in their businesses.
