Soludo Vows To End Sit-At-Home, Describes Ekpa As ‘Criminal’

By Adadainfo

Sit-at-home will no longer be observed in Anambra State in 2023, Governor Chukwuma Soludo said during the recent Public Service Day held in Awka.

The order was initially given on Mondays by the Indigenous People of Biafra following Nnamdi Kanu’s arrest in Kenya, and his subsequent detention in Abuja over an alleged treason. Kanu is the founder of IPOB.

Since the order was issued, it has been observed despite its subsequent cancellation by IPOB. It is observed in all the Southeast states except Ebonyi. IPOB had fixed sit-at-home on days Kanu will be in court.

Its climax was when Kanu’s estranged successor Simon Ekpa declared 9th and 14th December, 2022 sit-at-home to sensitise people of the Southeast not to participate in the 2023 elections.

Soludo, in vowing to end the sit-at-home, said the exercise had caused much damage to the people of the Southeast.

He said, “Last week, one madman living in Finland said he was declaring sit-at-home. It was only in Anambra that it was not observed. By the time you return next year, we shall stop sit-at-home.

“We must get back to work, working five days a week. We must take back Anambra from the criminals. We cannot build a prosperous Anambra when we work four days, when our children go to school four days, that is a 20 per cent loss in productivity.”
