The executive governor of Anambra state, Prof C.C. Soludo, has said that the Monday Sit-at-home protest which is observed every week across the south-east, will effectively end in Anambra on 4th April 2022.
Soludo made this known meeting with market leaders and relevant authorities at Dora Akunyili Women Development Centre Awka on Firday. The governor stressed that sit-at-home is driving investors out of Anambra which is negatively affecting the economy of the state. In his words, Gov Soludo said;
With effect from Monday April 4 2022; all markets, schools, banks and motor parks around the state will resume normal activities every Mondays. Security agencies shall be mobilized, Armed Forces and informal security organizations shall take charge to ensure lives and properties are protected.
“With the Monday sit at home exercise, the South East economy is gradually sinking. When you boycott activities in Anambra and normal activities are going on in other states, the person or persons you want to show your anger is not actually feeling what you are doing. You are only destroying your home.”
“There are proper ways to express agitations than to engage in activities that will destroy our home. Many businesses and investors are relocating to Asaba and other places. This is killing our economy and we cannot afford to continue that way.” – he said.
