Ohanaeze Ndigbo, the apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, has said that the era of Monday sit-at-home as ordered by the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, is over. Consequently, it asked residents of the South-East and other Nigerians who have businesses to do in the zone to go about their normal businesses today and indeed every Monday without fear.

Also, Ohanaeze told all schools in the zone to commence academic activities without any fear of molestation.

The assurance was given in a statement by Ohanaeze spokesman, Chief Alex Ogbonnia, issued yesterday and titled ‘No more sit at home. It stated that IPOB leadership had canceled the Monday sit-at-home order they had earlier issued.

It said, “The President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, Ambassador George Obiozor, uses this opportunity to appreciate the understanding and maturity exhibited by the IPOB during the Anambra State governorship election and the cancellation of the Monday sit-at-home.

“They have indeed scored two major points: First, the Igbo detractors and doomsayers were disappointed that the election was a resounding success. Second is that the IPOB can listen to appeal by the elders.

“It is very heartwarming that the Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, traditional rulers, archbishops, governors, eminent persons, women groups, the political class, the academia, etc in Igbo land are united in the Release-Nnamdi-Kanu-Project.

“This has proved to the skeptics that the Igbo unity is incontrovertible and that they can also be mobilised within a very short time.”

He added that despite diverse views and persuasions among the Igbo, the maturity in the Igbo republicanism had the rare capacity to unite for a common interest any time the need arose.

Ohanaeze therefore appealed to transporters and traders that go to the South-East, and especially foreigners from Cameroons, to feel free to transact their businesses.
