According to report from the PoliticsNigeria, it was gathered that the leaders of the South-east region such as the governors and traditional rulers have taken the bull by the horn and are all out to put an end to the Monday sit-at-home order issued by the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.

For over a month, there have been series of sit-at-home order across the south-east region and this has terribly affected the economic and social growth of the region. Mondays are known to be a strategic day of the week which could determine the outcome of the rest of the week.

Some residents have questioned why the leaders haven't reacted to the situation and after the south-east governors had met at the Enugu state government house, they agreed not to condone such orders issued illegally, as they avoided discussing about Mazi Nnamdi Kanu's case. The reason for their decision is due to how the sit-at-home order has terribly affected the progress of the region.
Some weeks ago it was rumoured that the sit-at-home order issued by the IPOB members, had been cancelled but on the contrary it seemed to have held as residents bluntly observed it and now the leaders are out to end it. The southeast leaders have decided to put an end to the Monday sit-at-home order in the region.
See two ways it would affect IPOB's activities:
1.) It would reduce their influence on the residents. A lot of the southeast residents have been heavily influenced ever since this sit-at-home started, and that is why a majority of them had complied and that's uncalled-for. But with this, they (IPOB) would lose their grip on the Igbos.
2.) This seems to be a tool they use to attack the region and if it is stopped just like the south-east leaders have agreed, then there won't be anymore activities from them.

So many south-east residents have lamented on how the Monday sit-at-home order, has affected their source of income. For those who feed on daily income, it's been a terrible experience for them and they can't wait to see it end.
What do you think of the new decision by the South-east governors?
