Following the IPOB sit-at-home order, the Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodimma, has reportedly stated that the Indigenous People of Biafra has no impact on the residents of the state, enough to order a sit-at-home.
According to reports, Uzodimma disclosed this after meeting with the President, Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, on Wednesday .
According to Uzodimma, “IPOB is not a government in Imo State and cannot order people to sit at home,” he added, saying that residents who depended on their businesses to make their daily bread would not stay at home.”
The governor reportedly stated that, Nigerians should refrain from acts that could cause instability, adding that they should not take the law into their own hands even when aggrieved.
While commenting on the IPOB sit-at-home order, the Governor made it known that, “In Imo State, it is not being observed. People are doing their businesses. Most people in Imo are businessmen and women who depend on their daily activities and income to feed their families. So, they cannot afford to sit at home idle and allow hunger to ravage the state.”
