THE THERAPEUTIC EFFICACY OF MARKETS (IN NIGERIA).

Published

THE THERAPEUTIC EFFICACY OF MARKETS (IN NIGERIA).

Markets in the usual wavelengths of things is ordinarily where intending prospective buyers of any ware(s) and or product(s) haggle with the seller(s) of such selfsame wares and products until a mutual business consensus (agreement) is reached between the referent duo as mentioned and relayed above.

Moreover, the above submission about the topic under the context holds sway and true in the peripheral lengths and breadths of things.

However and in addition to the earlier submission, a further study saddled with a deep reflection about market lately reveals that markets especially in the Nigerian economic and business clime serves as a potent platform for a sublime therapeutic essence and efficacy specifically for women largely since they throng the market scenes with their wares and on a small(er) scale men since they as well actively participate in the bipolar to and fro sales and buy(ing) of products and or wares.

Furthermore, Nigerian women often go to the market scenario not necessarily because they have a(ny) sizable quantity of wares and or products to buy and or sellout. They largely and merely go out to the market their distended pent up emotions that they have harboured and are still harbouring from their familial and or spousal bust-ups since men – their husbands in a twist of natural proclivity are not and won’t be giving them – women and or wife/wives enough listening ear to accommodate all the whole gamut of their unresolved (pent-up) emotions.

The women and or wives would readily and consequently use the market to release their broken-hearted and or maligned posture to other women and or wives they see in the market by embracing, hugging and seeing themselves eyeball-to-eyeball for long which subtly give and afford them the much-expected love and caressing and a warm communication reintegration which they have for long missed and are still missing husbands who have either eloped with another woman elsewhere or deceased or divorced and or separated.

By so doing, the typical lifespan and or longevity of married women tend to prolong beyond the ordinary.

Thus far, a keen and a careful reading and perusal of the above excerpt clearly and concisely depicts and portrays the market as a therapeutic gym(nasium) especially and specifically for married women in Nigeria but not merely a scene where buyers and sellers meet to haggle out prices of wares and or products.

Finally, I do hope that the excerpt tallies with the configured topic on the headline.

ThankYou for reading through!

WE’LL PUSH, PUSH UNTIL YOU WIN, PRESIDENT BUHARI ASSURES OKONJO-IWEALA
President Muhammadu Buhari Monday in Abuja assured Nigeria’s former Minister of Finance and Economy, Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, that the country will explore every opportunity and deploy its entire energy to ensure that she becomes the Director-General of World Trade Organisation (WTO).
Dr Okonjo-Iweala is one of two candidates contesting for the top position of the multilateral institution.
President Buhari, who received the former Managing Director (Operations) of the World Bank at the Presidential Villa, said she deserved more support to get the top job because of her profile and diligence in serving the country, and the world.
“I assure you that we will do all that we can to ensure that you emerge as the Director-General of WTO, not only because you are a Nigerian, but because you are a hardworking Nigerian. You deserve this,’’ he added.
WE’LL PUSH, PUSH UNTIL YOU WIN, PRESIDENT BUHARI ASSURES OKONJO-IWEALA
The President assured Dr Okonjo-Iweala that he will make more phone calls, and send letters to some world leaders for more support.
“I did the same for Dr Akinwunmi Adesina for President of the African Development Bank. Both of you served the country under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). You are both highly qualified. We will continue to support you. I will immediately make those calls,’’ the President told Dr Okonjo-Iweala.
In her remarks, Dr Okonjo-Iweala, a renowned development economist, thanked the President and his ministers, particularly the Ministers of Foreign Affairs, and Ministers of Industry, Trade and Investment for supporting her staunchly.
“I feel very proud of Nigeria. I am getting so much support from you, Mr President, Chief of Staff, Ministers of Foreign Affairs and Ministers of Industry, Trade and Investments. The ministers have been working around the clock to ensure that I succeed,’’ she said.
The former Minister of Finance also appreciated ECOWAS leaders for their endorsement, mentioning in particular the outstanding contributions of President Mahamadou Issoufou of Niger Republic and immediate past Chairman of ECOWAS as well as President Alhassan Quattara of Cote d’Ivoire.
She asked the President to “make one final push within the week to beat the Koreans and bring this to Nigeria by sending a few letters and placing telephone calls to some world leaders, and also thank others for their support.’’
“Mr President, put a smile on my face,’’ she said, “I am very proud of the country.’’
