Chief Whip of the Senate, Orji Uzor Kalu, has said that the sit-at-home in the South- East, ordered by the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, is being counter-productive.
Kalu, who made this known during an interview with newsmen on Tuesday in Abuja, said that it is not the right thing to do. He added that the IPOB- Sit- Home would promote hardship.
According to him, billions of naira are being lost due to the self-imposed lockdown in the South- East.
However, is Orji Uzor Kalu saying the truth about the effect of IPOB Sit- At- Home on the Southeast?
The IPOB Sit- At- Home is against the will of the federal government of Nigeria and it shouldn’t be obeyed by residents of the South- East. If residents of the South- East keep on sitting at home on Mondays, it could scare investors and it will affect the economy of the region.
I urge all residents of the South-East to stop listening to directives from IPOB because they are not in control of Nigeria. The federal government is against the IPOB- Sit- Home order and Nigerians living in the southeast should not adhere to the order.
Sit- At- Home Order As An Order That Should Be Ignored By Nigerians
The IPOB Sit- At- Home order should be ignored by all Schools, Markets, Churches, and Banks. Nigeria is controlled by the federal government and Biafra agitators have no right to issue directives to South- East residents.
The IPOB Sit- At- Home order has been leading to various debates from Nigerians. Many prominent Nigerians have warned against obeying the unlawful Sit- At- Home order. The order shouldn’t be obeyed because IPOB has no right to control citizens.
However, I urge all students to attend school activities without fear and panic. All shops in the South-East should be open for business. All Banks should be open for transactions and all Churches should be open for prayers.
The IPOB Sit- At- Home order should not alter any activity in the South- East. All residents in the South- East should not listen to IPOB because the federal government in charge of the country.
