The Anambra State Government has begun a campaign to end the infamous sit-at-home order which has crippled business activities in the state every Monday.

In the latest move, government officials serving in the Governor Chukwuma Soludo administration have been deployed to various markets to boost the confidence of traders and to encourage them to open their shops.

Chief of Staff to the Governor, Mr Ernest Ezeajughi; Special Adviser on Trade and Markets, Chief Evarist Uba; and his Security counterpart, AVM Ben Chiobi Rtd. on Monday, moved round major markets in the state on the mission.


Addressing market leaders in Awka, Ezeajughi, who led the team, told traders who opened their shops to encourage others to do same.

“Government has decided to provide maximum security across markets and had concluded arrangements with financial institutions across the state to open for business as well.

“Government will do everything possible to ensure full return of business on Mondays is achieved.

“We warn any market leadership that would sabotage the government’s present efforts towards achieving a boosted economic growth and stability to take caution because they will be seriously sanctioned,” he said.

The Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps, NSCDC, Anambra State Command, had previously stated that operatives have been deployed to banks to safeguard them.
