One of the ace politicians in the country cum Senate Chief Whip, Dr.
Orji Uzor Kalu has faulted the recent sit-at-home order issued by the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB saying the perceived marginalization of South East will be solved politically and not by ordering people not to go about their legitimate businesses.
It is instructive to know that the proscribed group had ordered that people of Southeast region sit at home every Monday in solidarity with its leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu who is currently standing trial over allegations bordering on treasonable felony.
Sen. Kalu noted that sitting at home will not be helpful to the economy of the South-East and the nation at large, adding that it will create more poverty.
"We are having a political problem. It could be solved politically not by oppressing people of Eastern Nigeria again, telling them to sit at home and not go to look for daily bread.
"If you don't go for your daily bread, you will not be able to continue. Reading from Bible, it says by your handwork I will bless you, if you don't have handwork, you will not be blessed.
"For God's sake, people should allow individuals to go and do their businesses" he appealed.
