ENUGU GOVT VOWS TO CLOSE MARKETS, SCHOOLS THAT FAIL TO OPEN ON MONDAY
The governor of Enugu State, Dr. Peter Mbah, has vowed to shut down any businesses and educational institutions that fails to open for business or classes on Monday moving forward.
The governor made the warning in a public service announcement made available to newsmen on Saturday night.
He said that the instruction was a follow-up to his recent decision to forbid or cancel Monday sit-at-home days throughout the entire state beginning on Monday, June 5, 2023.
This is to inform all schools, markets, retail outlets, hospitals, transporters, malls, and the general members of the public to conduct their regular business activities every day of the week, including Mondays, in the light of the recent ban or cancellation of Mondays’ sit-at-home by the Government of Enugu State.
“The aforementioned organizations, as well as others, are obliged to abide by the directive because sufficient security measures have been implemented to ensure their protection.
“Task force members from the government will be traveling about to check on compliance. Any store, transportation hub, or other organization that doesn’t open for business runs the risk of being closed down instantly.
