Many Nigerians have reacted to the street protest carried out by the youths in Ebonyi. One important thing to note here is that the youths were not afraid of being attacked by miscreants and hoodlums in the name of the IPOB sit-at-home order, but they defy the order and celebrated the State at 25. The youths should be commended for defending the honor of their State and Nigeria. They should be emulated by other South East youths who are also tired of the purported order.

Our diversity should be our strength, nobody should force people to stay at home out of their wish. The IPOB sit-at-home order has affected several businesses in the southeast geopolitical zone of Nigeria, that Allen Onyema, the CEO of the Air Peace was quoted to have said the order is affecting his business and will talk to President Muhammadu Buhari to release Nnamdi Kanu. The IPOB even dared to give an order that Nigeria Flags should be dropped all over South East.

A more reason the youths that defying them should be honored by the government for standing for what is right. Nigerians need to start solving their problems from the grassroots. The embodiment of all responsibilities on government has not worked well in Nigeria. If all Nigerians can emulate these youths and take responsibility for their actions without waiting for the government, Nigeria will have been a better place for all of us to live.
