Sit-at-home: Close your business, lose your right to operate, Umahi tells banks, shop owners
Ebonyi State Governor David Umahi says any Bank, Shop in the state that fails to open business activities on Monday will stand the risk of losing the right to operate business or banking operation in the state.
Umahi stated this on Sunday during the APC meeting at the State Ecumenical Centre, Abakaliki.
He also directed all civil and public servants to report to work across the state on Monday.
According to him, whosoever that fails to report to his or her duty post stands to lose their job.
He then charged all heads of MDAs to take note and also maintain attendance of workers as he had directed the security agencies to patrol 24 hours all corners of the state to ensure the safety of all persons.
He said, “Any shop in Ebonyi tomorrow (Monday) that doesn’t open must be taken over by government. Our Southeast is being gradually destroyed. We have to say no to that.
“A lot of federal agencies have placed Ebonyi State on red alert. I give example, like the Aviation ministry, it took my going to Abuja before they were able to come to give certain approval for our airport.
“Other ministries have placed Southeast on red alert; it is the highest level of foolishness. I want us to all help. Last two Mondays, many civil servants did not go to work, we decided not to pay them but the Spirit of God prevailed and we paid them. But tomorrow’s own anybody who fails to go to work, our local government chairmen you have to take note, that person will definitely cease to be a civil servant.
“The security agencies must take special note of this. Security agencies must start parading everywhere, this is very vital and I want us to come out and assist.”
Recall that the Indigenous People’s of Biafra (IPOB) had suspended the sit-at-home order after observing the order on August 7, following the instructions of their leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
