Governor Mbah announces an end to sit-at-home observance in Southeast and Enugu for IPOB.


Governor Peter Mbah of Enugu State stated on Tuesday that residents in the Southeast region no longer adhere to the sit-at-home order issued by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB). Mbah emphasized that people in the Southeast now carry on with their daily activities without the fear of being confronted by enforcers of the sit-at-home directive.

These remarks were made following Governor Mbah’s visit to President Bola Tinubu at the Presidential Villa in Abuja. According to the governor, “We no longer have a sit-at-home in Enugu State, and I dare say in the South-East. We have workers going to work on Monday, and schools are open on Monday. Business and economic activities are back. So, what we are dealing with now is to erase that sad memory from our history.”

Governor Mbah also lauded the financial reforms implemented by President Tinubu’s administration, highlighting their positive impact on the smooth flow of capital in and out of the country, particularly benefiting Enugu State. However, he acknowledged that certain policies, such as the removal of fuel subsidy, pose challenges for Nigerians.

“It is essentially to commend the president because a lot of things that he is doing at the national level are also rubbing off well on us at the state level – policies like the unification of the foreign exchange rate. What that simply means is that we are going to have a lot of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) coming in, and we are also going to benefit from that,” he added.
