Enugu state Governor, Peter Mbah, has announced an end to the sit-at-home protests in the state.
Mbah’s directive takes effect from Monday, June 6, 2023.
According to the governor, the sit-at-home orders were restricting creativity, entrepreneurship, and productivity in the state.
He, however, expressed government’s readiness “to engage in dialogue with people, who have genuine grievances towards bringing lasting peace and security to Enugu State”.
This was even as he called on President Bola Tinubu to release Mazi Nnamdi Kanu to quicken the much-needed healing process in Nigeria.
Mbah made the declaration while listing out the decisions reached at the end of his first security council meeting with the heads of all the security agencies at the Government House, Enugu, on Thursday.
At the meeting, which also had the Deputy Governor, Barr. Ifeanyi Ossai, in attendance, the Governor reminded the people of Enugu that he had hit the ground running on the day of his inauguration by signing three Executive Orders for the good governance of the state, including Executive Order 002 for the removal of “Unauthorised Street Barriers Across the State Within 100 Days”.
“There is no time to waste. The clock has started ticking on the mandate you gave me and deliverables I promised,” he reiterated.
