Listen to article

Governor Peter Mbah of Enugu State said on Tuesday that the residents of the Southeast are no longer abiding by the sit-at-home directive declared by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

Mbah pointed out that there is a noticeable shift, with residents of the Southeast now going about their business without the worry of being targeted by those enforcing the sit-at-home order.

He made these remarks after visiting President Bola Tinubu at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.’We no longer have a sit-at-home in Enugu State, and I dare say in the South-East. We have workers going to work on Monday, and schools are open on Monday,’ the governor said.

‘Business and economic activities are back. So, what we are dealing with now is to erase that sad memory from our history.’

Governor Mbah praised the financial reforms instituted by Tinubu’s administration, acknowledging their role in fostering a seamless flow of capital in and out of the country, thereby benefiting Enugu State.

However, he acknowledged that certain policies, such as fuel subsidy removal, pose challenges for Nigerians

‘It is essentially to commend the president because a lot of things that he is doing at the national level are also rubbing off well on us at the state level – policies like the unification of the foreign exchange rate. What that simply means is that we are going to have a lot of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) coming in, and we are also going to benefit from that,’ he added.
