I have been following the sit-at-home order by IPOB members and I don’t see why governor,Dave Umahi should be making a lot of threats out of nothing.
I am not a member of the Indigenous People of Biafra but that will not be the reason why I should be against the sit-at-home order or speak against it.
There is nothing wrong in them remembering Biafran heroes, in fact, governor Willie Obiano of Anambra state even remembered Biafran heroes last year and erected a Transparent Wall of Honor at the Cenotaph in Alex Ekwueme Square containing the names of all heroes past in remembrance of Late Biafran heroes.
Why should he threaten that those who decide not open their shops will lose it forever? Is he the one paying for the shop rent?
Let me quote what governor Obiano said last year after remembering Biafran heroes,
Obiano said: “Without memory, life assumes the attributes of a futile gaze into the void of time….Let’s Celebrate the bravery of these great spirits who lost their lives yesterday that we may find peace today”
Even the Yorubas up till now, always observe Abiola Day and their governors don’t speak against it or make any threats.
Everyone who knows or understands history should not be against sit-at-home order by IPOB members because they are disrupting any peace or unity except the person is not medically fit and needs to be examined!!
