Primate Ayodele Launches Palliative Market, Sells Bags Of Rice, Beans, Others For Less Than N5,000

 

 

 

The Leader Of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Ayodele has launched a palliative market initiative where prices of goods were crashed ridiculously for church members in order to cushion the effect of fuel subsidy removal and economic hardship in the country.

The Palliative Market which was launched today Sunday, 26TH Of November, 2023 can be best described as an unprecedented move especially within the religious circle.

At the programme, church members were able to buy goods and food items for very subsidized prices; A bag of Garri worth N16,000 went for just N1,000, Three tubers of Yam worth N10,000 were sold for N3,000, A bag of beans was sold for N3,000, Turkey worth N52,000 was sold for N17,000, bags of Poundo Yam and Semovita were sold for N5,000 and N2,000 respectively, A bag of rice sold for N3,000, to mention but a few.

It is worthy of note that this programme was launched after Primate Ayodele had given out free food items to every member of his church as it is usual for him to hold free food service monthly to support church members. Just like today, every member goes home with food items like Rice, Beans, Garri, Eggs, Yams, and many more, courtesy of the free food service.

At the Launch of the Palliative Market, Primate Ayodele blasted the federal and state governments for deceiving the citizens with fake palliative plans that didn’t have any direct impact on them. He described the government as deceitful, corrupt, and fraudulent over the palliative methods that didn’t materialize.

‘’The government has failed to perform its duties in cushioning the effects of fuel subsidy removal; a problem they created. The people are suffering so much that they can’t afford to feed. We have thousands of people in several communities that have resorted to begging so they can feed yet the government claims to have done palliatives.’’

‘’The palliative is nothing but corruption. The funds released and food materials the government claims to have shared is fraudulent. The people are dying in poverty and lack yet the government can’t do anything about it. It is really sad.’’

Speaking further, Primate Ayodele stated that apart from contributing his quota to the society, the reason behind his palliative market is to show the government how to properly help the people. He stated that they have missed it totally.

‘’ I am doing this because the government has missed it. I am contributing my quota to society so I can help the government do their job. If they don’t know how to do it, we will teach them how to do it. This is a model for the government to follow. There is serious hunger in the land and if the government can reduce it to a certain level, economic hardship will reduce.’’

Engage in Active Political Engineering, Not Planned Protest Says Buratai To The Youths

Buratai Lauds Allen Onyema On Air Peace's Inaugural Flight to London, Calls for Support

cautioned that a “10 day of rage” can not be peaceful. Such a protest will be unconstitutional. The word rage connotes violence.

 

 

The former Chief of Army Staff and former Nigerian Ambassador to the Republic of Benin retired Lt.-Gen. Tukur Buratai has advised Nigerian youths against the proposed nationwide protest by not allowing themselves to be used as willing tools by do-or-die partisan individuals or groups who want to stir up trouble in the country.

 

 

Buratai advised them to be good students of history and take lessons from the 2020 EndSars protest, which did not yield the desired benefit. According to him, what they did was to allow hoodlums to hijack the protest, and the result was total mayhem against innocent individuals, public, and private properties.

 

Not undermining their fundamental human rights, he cautioned that peaceful protest is guaranteed in our constitution, but in most cases, such protests end up being violent. The indicators are everywhere.

 

According to him, the planners of the protest have exposed their hidden and evil plan by christening the protest as “10 days of rage.” This means that the protest was never intended to be peaceful. A 10 day of rage can not be peaceful. The word rage connotes violence.

 

He challenged the planners of the protest to embrace the tenets of political engineering instead. According to him, youths constitute a large percentage of our voting and working population. Thus, they should be actively involved in the democratic process to bring about the needed change if need be.

 

“Youths can actively participate in politics, and their voices can be heard, their ideas and their actions can bring about the needed transformation in the country”

 

 

“Let Nigerians give the government the benefit of the doubt as President Tinubu listens to, and reacts to the challenges facing the country”, he concluded.

 

 

It would be recalled that the United Nations’ Department of Safety and Security has also issued a warning that the planned protests in Nigeria could be hijacked by groups with ulterior motives.

 

Also, President Tinubu has pleaded with the aggrieved Nigerians, especially the youths who are planning a national protest over the high cost of leaving to shelve the planned action. The President also assured those behind the planned national protest that he has heard their grievances and is working seriously to ensure that all their concerns are addressed.

 

According to reports, various Nigerian groups are planning a nationwide protest from August 1 to 10, dubbed “10 days of rage,” to address the country’s soaring cost of living and economic hardship.
