Umahi, who is the Chairman of the South-East Governors’ Forum recently revealed this to the press, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, the fact is that the proscribed group is no longer in control of the whole agitation, hence the reason why it has been hijacked by unscrupulous elements.
He added that the people of the South-East geopolitical zone are industrious people who don’t sit at home on Mondays.
His words, “The sit-at-home works to the average of 70 per cent in the South-East because of fear. It’s fear; our people are not the kind of people that sit at home – they hustle for their daily living, they go from one place to the other.”
“The worst sit-at-home is the terrible state of roads in the South-East, it is worst than IPOB sit-at-home.”
“But let me address the issue of IPOB sit-at-home to say that even IPOB themselves had come out severally to say, ‘Look o, we have suspended sit-at-home’, which is madness in the first place. You are not sitting at home in the North or in the West, you only sit at home in the South-East to destroy the economy of South-East.”
“You can’t destroy your people and pretend that you are fighting for your people. These are youths and then the agitation of IPOB has been hijacked by cultists and criminals and kidnappers, so the whole show is out of their hands.”
“So, it is out of fear that we don’t have enough security to protect the people, that’s why the people sit at home out of fear because many had been killed as a result of this and as a result of security people not being enough to protect them.”
