Sit-at-home over in South-East, says Ohanaeze Ndigbo


Apex Igbo social-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has urged the public in the South-East region to resume doing activities on Mondays following the end of the Indigenous People of Biafra’s sit-at-home order.

The organisation made the comment through a statement issued by its national publicity secretary, Alex Ogbonnia.

Mr Ogbonnia urged all schools in the South-East to resume academic activities without any fear of disturbance. He also said transporters and traders who come to the South-East from all over the country and the Cameroons could operate without feeling restricted as the IPOB had cancelled the sit-at-home order they issued earlier.

He added that Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide president-general Ambassador George Obiozor thanked the members of the IPOB for their understanding during the Anambra State governorship election and the cancellation of the order.

“They have indeed scored two major points: First, the Igbo detractors and doomsayers were disappointed that the election was a resounding success. Second is that the IPOB can listen to appeals by the elders,” Mr Ogbonnia said

“It is very heartwarming that the Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, Traditional Rulers, Archbishops, Governors, eminent persons, women groups, political class, the academia, etc. in Igbo land are united in the Release-Nnamdi-Kanu-Project.”

Ogbonnia asserted that this was the proof that “Igbo unity is incontrovertible”.

“While the huge losses incurred in the last months because of the sit at home is highly regrettable, efforts must be made to ensure that further losses are averted,” he added.
