Following the sit-at-home order by the Indigenous People of in southeastern states, Anambra state Governor, Willie Obiano has threatened to seal banks and punish market and motor-park leaders who stay at home on Mondays.

He directed banks, markets and motor parks in the state to be in operation on Monday.

The governor, who said the sit-at-home compliance adversely affected the Gross Domestic Product and the general economy of the state, maintained that banks that failed to open on such days would be sealed for a week, adding that if such banks refused to open subsequently, they would be permanently closed.

addressing transport leaders at the Governor’s Lodge, Amawbia, on Sunday the governor cautioned against further adherence to the order which he said had become inimical to the state.

He said, “I urged the commuters to feel free to ply usual routes across the state on Monday, whether they ride or drive motorcycles, keke, shuttle, buses.

“If markets don’t open, I the leadership of the market. If the market and park leaders don’t comply, leadership will be changed within two weeks.”
