OPINION: Why Sit-At-Home Order by IPOB will Never Solve Any Problem In South East

It is no more News to many Nigerians what is happening in the Southeast region of Nigeria, where people are being restricted to move freely on Mondays, because of IPOB's order.

The order known as Sit at home order was said to have been passed by the Proscribed Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB), as a form of solidarity for the group leader, Nnamdi Kanu, who is presently at the custody of the Department of State Service (DSS).

sit-at-home order has become a norm in the southeast region of Nigeria, whereby people will stay in their houses on Mondays, deserting the streets due to the fear of unpredictable repercussions that they might face if they should fail to comply with the laid down rule.

Many Businesses in the Southeast are facing challenges due to this order, some are even on the verge of bankruptcy due to the new normal the people are trying to live with.

It is, however, unfortunate to think about all these challenges, problems facing the Southeast, because it is obvious sitting at home on Mondays doing nothing, or deserting the streets and staying idle at home throughout the day will not solve any of the people's problems.

Instead of solving problems, the Sit at home order has successfully crippled the businesses of some Igbo men, while it has also destroyed the education of Secondary school students of the region, especially the Comprehensive Secondary School students in Imo state who were stopped from writing their English examination in the ongoing WASSCE examination nationwide.

It would be more preferable and advisable if the Southeast, IPOB will look inwardly at the disadvantages that are ensuing from the Sit-at-home order, because it is becoming palpable that this order hasn't given any positive result to the people, not even the IPOB. The order neither makes the Federal government worried to consider any of the IPOB agitations nor give the people of Southeast the peace they would love to have.
