Sit-At-Home: Go About Your Normal Businesses, Ohanaeze Tells S-East Residents

George Obiozor

Ambassador (Prof.) George Obiozor, President-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has urged res­idents of South-East to go about their normal businesses every Monday of the week because the era of Monday sit-at-home is gone.

He encouraged all schools in the South-East to com­mence their usual academic activities without any fear of molestation.

“The transporters and traders that come to the South-East of Nigeria from all parts of the country and the Cameroons are also ad­vised to feel free to come and transact their businesses. This is because, the lead­ership of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has cancelled the Monday sit-at-home order they had earlier issued”, he said.

The President-Gener­al, who spoke thorough Ohanaeze’s National Pub­licity Secretary, Chiedozie Alex Ogbonnia, lauded the understanding and maturi­ty exhibited by IPOB during the Anambra State gover­norship election and the cancellation of the Monday sit-at-home.

He said, “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 appeal by the elders.

“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. This has proved to the skeptics that the Igbo unity is incontrovertible and that they can also be mobilised within a very short time.

“There is no gainsaying the diverse views and per­suasions among the Igbo but the maturity in the Igbo republicanism is the rare ca­pacity to unite for a common interest any time the need arises.

“Ohanaeze Ndigbo there­by calls on all the market associations, road trans­port unions, labour leaders and all the interest groups to sensitise their members towards full economic activ­ities in all parts of Igbo land on Mondays.
