How sit-at-home orders can end in 40 days – Ohanaeze makes smart suggestion

The apex social-cultural group in the southeast, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has called on state governors in the region to work with it to end the era of sit-at-home within 40 days.

Okechukwu Isiguzoro, a factional Secretary-General of Ohanaeze, in a statement released on Friday, August 4, lamented the involvement of Finland-based Biafra agitator Simon Ekpa in the criminality affecting Igboland.

Isiguzoro claimed that presently, criminals are using the sit-at-home order to cause violence in the southeast.

The statement read: “The southeast region of Nigeria has been plagued by various challenges in recent times, including sit-at-home orders and violent agitations.

“In response to these issues, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, the apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, has issued a challenge to the southeast governors.

“They have requested a 40-day period to address the situation and put an end to the sit-at-home orders and the violence that has ensued.

“The assertion that the southeast governors should accept help from Ohanaeze Ndigbo is a call for collaboration and unity. It is essential for everyone involved to set aside personal differences and work towards a common goal—the restoration of peace and stability in the Southeast.

“Ohanaeze Ndigbo’s challenge to the southeast governors to give them 40 days to end the sit-at-home orders and violent agitations in southeast Nigeria is a call for collaboration and peace.”
