The Ohanaeze Ndigbo can actually help to stop the persistent orders being given to Igbo people. The orders have seriously hampered the development of the five states in southeast and even the forthcoming Anambra election is under some possible threats. The sociocultural organisation can step in to help to stop the issue.
For several months now, the proscribed group, the Indigenous People of Biafra, has been indiscriminately asking people to stay at home. This affects the socioeconomic activities of the people as schools, banks, markets, streets are shut. But the Ohanaeze Ndigbo can come in to help the people.
There are certain steps that the Ohanaeze Ndigbo can take to help solve the matter. And the first one is to kindly calm down the proscribed group to stop its sit-at-home orders at least for the interest of the people. Truly, the government may not be able to generate funds, but the people suffer the most from the issue.
The sociocultural organisation can reach out to the group and its allies in the southeastern part of Nigeria. Ohanaeze Ndigbo is a large organisation which acts as the voice to the Igbo people. As a matter of fact, the proscribed group and its members can't disrespect the leaders in Ohanaeze Ndigbo.
But if it happens that the group continues to issue the orders, the Ohanaeze Ndigbo can use some other approaches. And one of the methods is to organise a regional protests against the sit-at-home orders. The people would troop out to help and cooperate with the Ohaneze.
The people might have come out to show their opposition to the sit-at-home orders. However, the problem is that they don't have people to lead them. Ohanaeze Ndigbo can come in. Meanwhile, such a task needs to be carried out along with the five governors of the region.
The Igbo people have five states with five governors. The sociocultural organisation should liaise with the five governors who can provide security for the exercise. If there can be a constant protest against the IPOB orders, surely, the sit-at-home commands would end and calm would be restored to the southeast region.
