Don’t Heed Ipob’s Sit-at-home, Enugu Govt Tell Residents

Listen to article

The Enugu State Government has reiterated its call to the people of the state, urging them to pay no heed to the sit-at-home directive issued by the factional members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) for Monday, and instead, carry on with their daily routines without any hesitation.

The government’s directive to resume normal activities on Monday comes with a firm warning to civil servants, schools, markets, and other parties to abstain from observing the illegal IPOB sit-at-home order, lest they face punitive actions.

The directive was made known through a statement signed by Prof. Chidiebere Onyia, Secretary to the State Government, on Saturday in Enugu.

His words: ‘The Enugu State Government wishes to remind the good people and residents of the state that the ban on the illegal Monday sit-at-home order remains effective.’

‘In view of this, civil servants, schools, markets, financial institutions, business premises, and others, are hereby directed to resume normal activities on Monday.’

Adding to his statement, Prof. Chidiebere Onyia, Secretary to the State Government, emphasised that the state government is committed to taking disciplinary actions against defaulters of the cancellation of the illegal order.

‘Markets that fail to open to customers on Monday shall be shut down indefinitely and shops in the markets that close on Monday shall be sealed and re-allocated to those eager to do business in the state.’

‘Government extends the same warning of sanctions against schools, financial institutions, shopping malls, department stores, business premises, and others that may defy its directive,’ he said

‘Therefore, general public is urged to go about their normal daily activities as adequate security measures have been put in place to protect lives and property,’ he counseled.

Onyia further stressed that the illegal sit-at-home order stood in complete contradiction to the Igbo spirit of industry, hard work, enterprise, productivity, and creativity.
