The Apex Igbo socio-cultural Organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo has announced the end of sit-at-home order observed in the South East and advised members of the public to go about their usual businesses on Mondays.

A statement issued by its National Publicity Secretary, Alex Ogbonnia, urged all schools in the South East to resume their usual academic activities as well as transporters and traders from other parts of the country and the Cameroons to feel free and go about their normal businesses without any fear of molestation.

The statement disclosed that leadership of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has cancelled the Mondays sit-at-home order they had earlier issued.

According to the statement, the President-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, Ambassador George Obiozor appreciated the understanding and maturity exhibited by the IPOB during the Anambra State governorship election and the subsequent cancellation of the sit-at-home order

“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 mobilized within a very short time,” he noted.

“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,” Ohanaeze stated.

“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.

The Organization called on all the market associations, road transport unions, labour leaders and all the interest groups to sensitize their members towards full economic activities in all parts of Igbo land on Mondays, in a bid to shore up the volume of business transactions as the Christmas season sets in.
