IPOB sit-at-home order must stop now, says Soludo

Chukwuma Soludo, the governor of Anambra State, says he has taken a joint decision with market leaders and chieftains of transport union to end the “stay-at-home” order imposed on the state by the outlawed Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, IPOB.

Soludo said the decision was taken at a meeting he had with the union leaders, artisans, and business owners.

He lamented the punitive order, saying that it “has proven to be counter-productive”

“Our people are losing productive hours and competitiveness to the activities of criminal elements who have taken advantage of this self-defeating strategy to destroy the economy of our dear State.

“This has to stop and immediately too,” he said.

“In  the new system that we are collectively building with the active support of these critical stakeholders, there will be zero tolerance for touting and any form of criminality that seeks to maim, kill or threaten the peace of the people.

“I reiterated the commitment of the State to phase out the old method of revenue collection.

“The new method we would deploy, will leverage the use of technology and ensure that a larger percentage of government revenues from this source fully comes into government coffers for effective use.

“Anambra must work in our time and beyond.”
