Prof Chukwuma Charles Soludo, Anambra State Governor, today Monday, April 4, 2022 attended a special prayer session at St. Joseph Catholic Church, Ekwulobia to pray for the return of peace and tranquillity in Anambra State

His Lordship, Bishop Ebele Okpalaeke, Bishop of Ekwulobia Diocese led the prayer session. In his brief homily to the congregation, he prayed and charged the people to embrace peace.

He added that nothing can be achieved without peace and harmony in the land. He appealed to those who are bent on creating fear and tension in the land to desist forthwith and embrace the olive branch offered by the state government for peace to return to the State.

Governor Chukwuma Soludo in his remarks, also appealed to the non-State actors still engaged in all manner of criminalities to lay down their arms and embrace peace. He, again, reiterated that the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) had issued a press release putting an end to the Monday sit-at-home.

Governor Soludo further said the people and the state are the major losers anytime the Sit-At-Home order is enforced adding that children are deprived from going to school every Monday and economic activities are also grounded.

He asserted that the State cannot continue in that manner, stressing that this is the time to take back Anambra State and build it as a home of peace and the light of the nation

Governor Soludo also informed the congregation that the State government has put in place measures to rehabilitate and train the youths to be gainfully employed as well as the setting up of Peace and Reconciliation commission to reconcile all aggrieved parties

He said with the prayers offered today, the Monday weekly sit-at-home is officially over. He urged the people to come out every Monday to conduct their business while schools and other essential institutions/agencies are required to open for business every Monday as well

Governor Soludo was accompanied to the prayer session by the Special Adviser on Security, AVM Ben Chiobi; Hon Eche Ezeibe, (Ijele),TC chairman, Aguata LGA; Hon Chinedu Nwoye (Glamour), Deputy Chief of Staff and State Chief Protocol to the Governor and other government functionaries.
