Anglican Bishop Ogbaru Diocese, Rt. Rev. Prosper Amah has raised an alarm over the aggressive level of touts in Anambra State, warning Governor Charles Soludo that the trend could mar his vision for the state.
Bishop Amah appealed to Soludo not to allow violent activities of touts to destroy his vision of Anambra State as a livable and prosperous mega smart city and a preferred place to live, learn, work and enjoy.
He noted that Governor Soludo started well on the assumption of office by banning all manner of touting in the state but regretted that he later allowed touting to take the shine off his government.
“Mr Governor, you started well by banning the activities of touts in Anambra State.
"Unfortunately, that monster is back on stage again in a more aggressive and violent manner which supports the scripture that says, 'When an evil spirit leaves a person, it goes into the desert, seeking rest but finding none'.
“Then it says, I will return to the person I came from.
"So it returns and finds its former home empty, swept and in order.
"Then the spirit finds seven other spirits more evil than itself, and they all enter the person and live there.
"And so, that person is worse off than before.
"That will be the experience of this evil generation. We pray that the activities of touts in Anambra State, will not degenerate to that level.”
Bishop Amah reminded Governor Soludo that Anambra is a state with a rich history of giant strides, blessed with creative, hardworking and innovative people.
"Governor Soludo promised to build and make it a livable and prosperous mega smart city, a preferred place to live, learn, work and enjoy, and he should therefore, not allow touts to destroy the vision.
