The apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has asked the people of the South-East geopolitical zone to go about their normal activities on Mondays because the era of sit-at-home was over.
In a statement on Sunday, Ohaneze also praised the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) for yielding to demands for an end to the sit-at-home order and for full participation in the just concluded Anambra gubernatorial election.
Ohaneze asked all the schools in the zone to commence their usual academic activities without any fear of intimidation or violence.
The statement titled, ‘No more sit at home’, was issued by the Spokesman of Ohaneze, Alex Ogbonnia.
It read partly, “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.”
