The apex Igbo socio-cultural organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo has thrown her support to the recent cancellation of the Monday sit-at-home in Enugu state by Governor Peter Mbah.
The Enugu state chapter President of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Professor Fred O. Eze, who made the position of the group known in a statement he released to journalists in Enugu on Wednesday, noted that the cancellation of the IPOB-imposed sit-at-home was a step in the right direction.
Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Enugu State applauds the courage and tenacity of the Governor in taking such bold initiative to put an end to the scourge of site at-home,” the statement noted.
Ohanaeze recalled that before the cancellation by the Enugu State Government, the agitators had adopted several strategies to enforce the sit-at-home order.
“Consequently, Enugu State has become overwhelmed by a climate of fear such that people no longer
go about their businesses with confidence.
“Every Monday in Enugu State has become an unofficial holiday because businesses and other social activities usually come to a halt.
