The Commissioner of Information and Public Enlightenment, C. Don Adinuba, in a circular stated that the reminder became necessary because of the tendency of some people who have observed “in the last few months every Monday as a work-free day, in compliance with the directive by some non-state actors in an effort to press the Federal Government to free the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, who is standing trial for some charges in Abuja brought by the federal administration”.

The government noted that even the leadership of IPOB has suspended the directive ordering people to stay at home every Monday which started from Monday, September 15, 2021, throughout the Southeast geopolitical zone.

“In fact, far from disrupting the election, IPOB encouraged the people of Anambra State to come out in their numbers and exercise their democratic right on November 6; the election is now recognized as easily the most peaceful and the fairest election since the State was created in 1991”.
