The special assistant to the Lagos state governor on Drainage and Water Resources matters and spokesperson of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Lagos State chapter, Engineer Joe Igbokwe has finally responded after former Governor Nnamani, Senate Committee on Cooperation and Integration in Africa, has called upon proscribed Indigenous Peoples Of Biafra, IPOB in the South- east for an end to the ‘ sit- at- home order.
Remember on Sunday, Enugu’ s former governor addressing journalists in Abuja, said that the order of Indigenous Peoples Of Biafra, IPOB had brought down the economy and social life of the South- East region.
From his point of view, Nnamani said ” we (Igbos) cannot inadvertently inflict more sufferings on ourselves by this sit- at- home order. ”
Nevertheless, in response to what Nnamani said, Joe igbokwe made a post on his official Facebook account to thank him for expressing himself in such a moment.
He said: ” Sit at home is against Igbo interest”
— Ex- Governor Chimaoke Nnamani.
” ME: THANk YOU, YOUR EXCELLENCY, FOR SPEAKING OUT AT A TIME LIKE THIS. ”

Let’ s take a look at some reactions from people online below:
” If Kanu who is in detention can be controlling South East of Nigeria from detention and orders them to sit at home every Monday without coercion and they obey him hook line and sinker it then means he is generally acceptable than all the Governors, Senators, Ministers, Local Government Chairmen and all other political appointees who are in control of government machinery and coercive instruments of power. I think that it is time to bury pride and negotiate with Kanu who is the generally accepted Leader by the ordinary people of South East who are in the majority except for the few elites who are living outside the region but kept on making noise to be seen and heard to be politically correct. I think negotiating with Kanu will not be a bad idea and is the surest path to peace again in the South East. This is my humble opinion. Peace. ”
” But the truth is not yielding anything now. . . when they sit at home still active what is the governors doing they should call for dialogue and peace shall stand again”
