The Abia transport workers (ABT) have appealed to those enforcing the IPOB sit-at-home order to give them some palliative to help them ease its' effect. According to them, the sit-at-home order is affecting them greatly.
The transport workers maintained that their sector had the worst hit of the development as they deal mostly with passengers. And if passengers fail to show up and patronize them, there is no way that they can make ends meet.
It would be recalled that the proscribed group gave an order for a sit-at-home every Monday of the week, but it was subsequently called off. And despite the suspension of the sit-at-home by IPOB, residents of the region still comply with the order over the fear of being attacked. The transporters, however, said that the development is making things difficult for them.
They, however, appealed to those enforcing the sit-at-home order to give them some palliatives to help them cushion the effect.
The request is not out of proportion, if such order is to stand, then plans should be made by those enforcing the order to ensure that people are not greatly affected. What do you think?
