Imo state Governor Hope Uzomdinma hire youths to welcome President Buhari as residents obey IPOB Sit-at-home order.

Imo state Governor Hope Uzomdinma has received President Muhammadu Buhari at Sam Mbakwe Airport, Owerri, the state capital, on Thursday. 

President Buhari is meant to be in Owerri, the state capital on Thursday to commission some state projects.

Reports state that Buhari was welcomed by hundreds of youths hired by the governor to counter the sit-at-home directive given by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) as they were stuffed in a fleet of buses and taken to the airport.

Buhari was welcomed by hundreds of youths hired by the governor to counter the sit-at-home directive given by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) as they were stuffed in a fleet of buses and taken to the airport, SaharaReporters has learnt.

A source told Sahara Reporters that Governor Uzomdinma hired youths in large numbers and conveyed them to the airport in buses to welcome the President.

"Many of them are youths. They should be up to a thousand. I saw a series of buses conveying them to the airport because Governor Uzodinma doesn’t want the President to feel the sit-at-home order by IPOB was effective.

“But, generally, the second leg is that there is a sit-at-home order. The town is dry because the people didn’t go out. All markets are closed. No vehicles on the roads.

“People didn’t go out because of fear of attack. They are scared of attacks. There are military fighter jets hovering in the air in case anything happens.

“The projects are located in and outside Owerri. So we can say the capital and the places adjoining Owerri are affected like Nazi in the Owerri North Local Government Area and Owerri Municipal. These are the places he might go for the projects,” the source said.
