Sit-at-home: Enugu seals 106 shops, two banks

Enugu State Governor Peter Mbah's administration recently sealed 106 shops and two banks for allegedly observing the Monday sit-at-home order imposed by a factional leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Simon Ekpa. 

This decision was taken as a measure to inculcate the spirit of 'no sit-at-home' in traders and encourage business activities in the state.

According to the Governor's Secretary, Prof. Chidiebere Onyia, all the sealed businesses will remain closed for one week, after which the government will consider reopening them on certain conditions or selling them off. 

The administration is not looking to punish businesses but to promote a sense of ownership culture where all come together to fight the menace of the illegal sit-at-home in the state.

The sealing of the businesses is part of a wider effort by the state government to discourage the sit-at-home order and encourage business activities in the state. 

The government had earlier directed business and shop owners to open for normal businesses on Monday and every work day, or have their business premises and shops sealed. The sealing of the businesses is a direct consequence of the businesses' failure to comply with the government's directives.

The administration has created a task force to monitor compliance with the directive and ensure that business activities continue unhindered in the state. The task force will be in the markets next Monday to continue to monitor the situation and ensure that traders comply with the government's directives.

Overall, the sealing of the businesses in Enugu State is part of a broader effort by the government to promote business activities and discourage the sit-at-home order imposed by certain groups. 

The government hopes that this action will encourage traders to resume their business activities, which will ultimately lead to economic growth and development in the state.
