Prof. Chukwuma Charles Soludo, Anambra State Governor, on Monday visited some offices within the Government House.

POLITICS NIGERIA recalls that the Head of Service, Anambra State, Barrister Theodora Igwegbe, had last week issued a circular to all civil servants to report to work every Monday of the week as against the sit-at-home order originally issued by the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

Prof. Soludo on assuming office as Governor of Anambra had appealed to all armed groups to lay down their arms and come out of the forest.

Governor Soludo had also on several fora decried the Monday weekly sit-at-home which has deeply affected the economic activities of the State. The Governor had asserted that the sit-at-home syndrome has further pauperised the people’s economic fortunes, especially those who engage in daily income businesses.

The Governor had also met with market women and transport union leaders last week in a meeting and discussed on putting a stop to the Monday weekly sit-at-home order.

On that occasion both Soludo and the market/transport union leaders agreed to put an end to the weekly sit-at-home order by reporting to work and also ensuring that shops are opened for business every Monday.

While in the state capital, Awka, activities as cars and people were seen moving freely around, at the Jerome Udorji secretariat in Awka, most offices were empty and the few workers who reported to duty were seen leaving for home at about 12.30 pm.
