George Obiozor: leader of Ohanaeze Ndigbo

Ohanaeze Ndigbo, the Pan-Igbo socio-cultural organization, has told the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) to end sit-at-home now as it is crumbling economic activities in the Southeast.

Ohaaneze, in a statement on Tuesday by its its Secretary General, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, said proponents of sit-at-home were not observing the exercise abroad where they live.

The group said in Asia, Europe, and America, Ndigbo Were wiser now than before, saying there should be no more sit-at- home.

The body stated that it was in support of out-of-court settlements that would make Nnamdi Kanu regain his freedom, but not through absurd enslavement of the people with the one week planned sit-at-home exercise.

Ohanaeze said it observed that Igbos’ loyalty to non-state actors had been abused, as they had pounced on the confidence of Ndigbo, through the absurdity of sit-at-home, and which also is conceived to obliterate the established investments in region owned by southeast elites and politicians.

It added that these proponents of sit-at-home were not local investors, entrepreneurs and importers, but that the idea of sit-at-home was geared towards the destruction of targeted established investments of corrupt politicians and elites since they were without any visible investments.

According to Ohanaeze, the past sit-at-home by IPOB had destroyed the academic activities, small businesses, and artisans who depended on daily trade and services to feed their households.

It said IPOB leaders did not have any visible investments in the southeast, saying they were only using Ndigbo as baits and pawns against the Igbo political class, especially on Anambra elections.

The group said the consequences of their actions might be detrimental and pernicious to the point where federal government would eventually deploy the super fighter jets to the southeast to quell the fallout from the one week sit-at-home.
