Cancellation of sit-at-home: A win for Anambra state and the entire south-east as a whole.

It is a trending news that, proscribed group, independent people of Biafra have cancelled proposed sit-at-home orders in the south-east region. The one week sit-at-home order earlier proposed by the group has now been cancelled, this is happening after the group met with the leaders and stakeholders of the region in a bid to tackle surfacing violence, unrest and tension in the region, especially in Anambra state which is poised to hold it gubernatorial election on the 6th of November.

The leaders of the region (southeast) must be commended for doing the needful by clamouring for peace in Anambra and southeast region as a whole. The adequate steps taken by the leaders of southeast in ensuring that the sit-at-home order is cancelled before Anambra's governorship elections is not just a win for Anambra state but the whole of southeast region and below are the reasons why I said so:

- The cancellation of sit-at-home order will enable citizens to come out to vote without fear of violence or attacks.

The cancellation of sit-at-home order will not only reduce tension in Anambra state, it will provide a condusive and positive environment for voting. This will encourage voters to come out in mass to exercise their civic rights on Saturday, November 6, 2021 as they decide the next governor of the state.

- Everyone in the region can go about their businesses and normal daily activities.

The citizens of southeast can carry on with their businesses and daily activities without looking over their shoulders. This is a relief because there are many people who depend on daily incomes to feed their families and loved ones, staying at home for a week without business activities would have put some families and individuals in a financial jeopardy.

Southeast leaders must find a way to build on this win so that the region can return to it economic flamboyance. By taking the right steps they can ensure that sit-at-home becomes a thing of the past in south-east region as they embark on the quest to return peace and stability to the southeast region.
