The United Marketers Association (UMAPO), Yobe state chapter, on Friday, organised prayers to seek divine intervention over the present economic hardship.
Speaking at the prayer ground, Chairman of UMAPO Potiskum chapter, Alhaji Nasiru Mato, said the prayer was to seek God’s forgiveness due to the economic hardship in the country and ask Him the way forward.
“The challenges of high cost materials such as food items and other things happened as a result of the fuel subsidy removal. Marketers are facing seriously challenges at this trying moment,” he said.
He called on federal, state and local government to set up committees that will come up with ways to cushion the hardship being faced by Nigerians.
