Tinubu dares IPOB, schedules presidential campaigns in the Southeast for Mondays

The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Bola Tinubu has scheduled his campaign rallies in Anambra State and Imo State on Mondays.

Tinubu will be in the Southeast states – Imo on Monday, November 21, and Anambra on Monday, January 30, according to the presidential campaign timetable released by the APC Presidential Campaign Council (PCC).

The APC and Tinubu’s decision to hold their presidential campaigns on Mondays is in defiance of the mandatory sit-at-home order by the proscribed separatist group Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

IPOB declared the sit-at-home order in August 2021 to protest and demand the release of their leader Nnamdi Kanu, who is standing trial on treason and terrorism charges by the Nigerian government.

Violators of the sit-at-home order have been victims of violence and killings by gunmen in southeast states on Mondays. Vehicular movements and commercial activities are on halt in compliance with IPOB’s order.

In early October, IPOB said it has no plans to disrupt the 2023 election and accused the government of masterminding insecurity in the Southeast zone.
