Senator Ifeanyi Ubah, the representative of Anambra South in the Senate, has advised Simon Ekpa, a Biafran agitator, to focus his sit-at-home campaign in his home state of Ebonyi and not involve Anambra State.

Despite the suspension of the sit-at-home directive by the mainstream leadership of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Ekpa has been actively promoting it in the South Eastern states.

During a meeting with stakeholders from the Anambra South zone, Senator Ubah expressed concerns about the negative impact on security and the economy caused by the unproductive Monday sit-at-home order. He called for an end to the practice, starting with Nnewi.

Senator Ubah specifically cautioned Ekpa, who is currently in Finland, against issuing sit-at-home orders in Anambra State on Mondays, emphasizing that it is not his responsibility.

He said, "I have heard from one Simon Ekpa, this is a warning Simon, for 17 good times you have mentioned Ifeanyi Ubah and I did not reply to you. You have been seeking my attention for 17 good times and I am answering you today, never ever mention Ifeanyi Ubah or Nnewi again."

"Your state Ebonyi is APC state and you have never one day mentioned your state Ebonyi. Ebonyi does not observe sit-at-home, you are in Finland contesting for councillorship or whatever, and you go to your job on Mondays but you want to deprive people because you have communication gadgets, you have the internet to run propaganda.

"I am elected officer of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and I represent the people of Anambra South. To you Simon Ekpa and your co-travellers, for anyone of you to mention sit-at-home again, you will start preaching the sit-at-home from Ebonyi before you continue to mention Anambra State and Enugu.

"I am telling you Simon Ekpa, be careful, I won’t say more than this, you have mentioned me 17 times and I’m going to reply once, Try me you will see. Go and observe sit-at-home in Ebonyi and also with your father, your family go and observe sit-at-home in your village and leave Anambra State alone."

The lawmaker expressed determination to uphold their decision of disregarding any sit-at-home directive, regardless of efforts by infiltrators to interfere in their affairs.

He also said, "As a representative of the people of Anambra State, Nnewi North being the political capital of Anambra South, we deem it fit to say we will not continue to sit at home on Mondays."

“From this Monday, every business based in Nnewi will be open for business. We have our men, we have our system – we know saboteurs will come to sabotage what we are doing but we are resolute to fight any aggressor that will come into this town."
