    IPOB: Carry out your normal activities, Ohanaeze tells transporters, others

    The apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, on Sunday appealed to residents of the South-East and indeed Nigerians that have businesses to do in the zone to feel free to go about their normal businesses on Mondays, noting that the era of Monday sit-at-home was over.

    It also enjoined all the schools in the zone to commence their usual academic activities without any fear of molestation.

    A statement by Ohanaeze spokesman, Chief Alex Ogbonnia, made available to our correspondent in Enugu, also appealed to transporters and traders that go to the South-East, and especially foreigners from Cameroons, to feel free to transact their businesses.

    The statement titled ‘No more sit at home’, said the leadership of the Indigenous People of Biafra had cancelled 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 sceptics 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.
