Anambra State Governor, Charles Chukwuma Soludo has insisted that the every Monday sit-at-home observed in the state since August 9, 2021 must stopped next week April 4, 2022.
Information from the Anambra State Government House Press unit indicated that Governor Charles Soludo made the declaration while addressing market leaders and relevant authorities at Dora Akunyili Women Development Centre Awka two days ago.
“The Executive Governor of Anambra State, Professor Charles C. Soludo CFR stated with effect from Monday April 4 2022; all markets, schools, banks and motor parks around the state will resume normal activities every mondays.
“Security agencies shall be mobilized, Armed Forces and informal security organizations shall take charge to ensure lives and properties are protected”, the Government House Press release reads.
Governor Charles Soludo had directed all workers in the state to ignore the every Monday sit-at-home ordered by the leadership of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB today and threatened to sanction any one who fails to resume work today.
Information from Anambra State today indicated that the workers boycott work and obey the sit-at-home order with streets like Onitsha-Owerri road, Ezeiweka Obosi, Okpoko, main market and almost all public places in the state deserted.
According to Mr Governor, “With the Monday sit at home exercise, the South East economy is gradually sinking. When you boycott activities in Anambra and normal activities are going on in other states, the person or persons you want to show your anger is not actually feeling what you are doing. You are only destroying your home.”
“There are proper ways to express agitations than to engage in activities that will destroy our home. Many businesses and investors are relocating to Asaba and other places. This is killing our economy and we cannot afford to continue that way.”
