IPOB Must End Sit-At-Home Now, Businesses In Igboland Are Collapsing- Ohanaeze

The Pan-Igbo socio-cultural organization Ohanaeze Ndigbo has cautioned against the adverse implications of the intended one-week sit-at-home order by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) in the southeast region.

Ohanaeze claimed that the group’s planned one-week sit-in was rapidly having serious and negative effects on the deep desire of the people to enhance and exploit the southeast’s economic potentials for growth.

In a statement by its Secretary General, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, Ohanaeze made it known to the IPOB that they should reconsider the one-week sit at home order.

The statement read: “We observed that Igbos’ loyalty to non state actors has been abused, as they have pounced on the confidence of Ndigbo, through the absurdity of sit-at-home, and which also is conceived to obliterate the established investments in region owned by southeast elites and politicians. These proponents of sit-at-home are not local investors, entrepreneurs and importers. The idea of sit-at-home is geared towards the destruction of targeted established investments of corrupt politicians and elites since they are without any visible investments.

“The past sit-at-home by IPOB had destroyed the academic activities, small businesses, and artisans who depend on daily trade and services to feed their households. IPOB leaders don’t have any visible investments in the southeast, they are only using Ndigbo as baits and pawns against the Igbo political class especially on Anambra elections. The consequences of their actions might be detrimental and pernicious to the point where federal government will eventually deploy the super tuscon fighter jets to the southeast, in pretense to quell the fallout from the one week sit-at-home. Ndigbo should henceforth break from the local siege of proponents of sit-at-home without investments in the southeast zone”,
