Governor Charles Soludo has stated that Anambra State will not comply with any illegal sit-at-home order issued by non-state actors.
The state administration has advised that residents disregard any sit-in order issued by unauthorised individuals or groups in the state going forward.
The decision was stated in a statement issued by Mr Christian Aburime, Press Secretary to Gov Soludo, on Thursday in Awka.
According to the statement, the decision was prompted by Simon Ekpa’s recent order to sit at home.
The release, which called the order illegal, asked inhabitants of the state not to comply with such non-state actor commands or to blame themselves for doing so.
The following is said in the statement:
“Such directives should be completely disregarded by Anambra residents and, by extension, the entire South East.”
“Imposing sit-at-home orders by unauthorized individuals or groups is a clear violation of the law.”
“Anambra State will never obey a sit-down order.” Our markets, schools, businesses, and other social events will continue to operate as usual.
“Anambra State will never become a breeding ground for anarchy, fear, or lawlessness.”
