Former Kaduna Senator, Shehu Sani has applauded the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, over the cancellation of the sit-at-home order across the South-East.
Recall that the outlawed group had ordered the sit-at-home across the region following the incarceration of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
But in a statement on Thursday by its spokesperson, Emma Powerful, IPOB announced the cancellation of the one-week sit-at-home order in the region.
The group disclosed that it cancelled the order following consultations with elders, traditional, and religious leaders in the zone.
IPOB, however, appealed to the people of Anambra to vote for the right candidate in Saturday’s governorship election and standby to protect their votes.
In a post via his verified Twitter handle on Friday, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain commended IPOB for lifting the sit-at-home order in Anambra ahead of the election.
Sani stated that no political cause should undermine, subvert or stifle the nation’s democratic elections.
He wrote: “No political cause should undermine, subvert or stifle democratic elections; the cancellation of the sit at home protest in Anambra is the right thing to do and commendable. #AnambraDecides2021″
