How the Government Can Put an End to South East Sitting at Home – Shehu Sani


Former Kaduna Central Senator Shehu Sani has proposed a remedy to the South-East region’s rising insecurity as a result of the sit-at-home directive.

Recall that the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB)’s Finland-based splinter leader, Simon Ekpa, has declared a series of sit-ins in protest of the continued detention of the proscribed group’s leader, Nnamdi Kanu.

Speaking about the situation and how to deal with the effects of the sit-at-home order on socioeconomic activity, Sani urged the Federal Government and Governors in the region to use financial incentives.

Because the sit-in is normally observed on Mondays, the socio-political pundit proposed that the government begin distributing N50,000 palliatives to South-East citizens in market places every Monday in order to encourage them to come out.

“Share 50k palliatives in the market every Monday to end sit-at-home,” the former legislator tweeted on Sunday.

Remember that in order to resolve the issue in the region, Ohanaeze Ndigbo requested that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu proclaim a state of emergency.

According to the Igbo cultural group, “a desperate situation necessitates desperate action.” We want to reiterate that Ohanaeze will not stand by and watch as criminals ruin economic activity in the Southeast.

“If at all possible, the area where this sit-in is taking place should be declared a state of emergency.” This is what Tinubu would do to get the Southeast governors to pay attention and find a long-term solution to the problem.”
