Anambra State Governor, Chief Willie Obiano, Monday led the enforcement of the return to full business and other economic activities in the state.

The state had in the last five weeks witnessed a shutdown on Mondays, leading to a directive by Obiano to business owners, banks and market leaders to resume duties or risk sanction.

Obiano, had in a meeting with bank managers in the state last weekend, directed them to resume operation every weekday, warning that any bank that defaulted would be sealed off.

The governor, who led members of his executive council round the state capital Monday, visited banks and markets in the state capital.

At Eke Awka market, the governor commended traders, who shunned the sit-at-home order by the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) to come to the market, saying that his administration must avoid giving urchins the chance to take over the state.

THISDAY observed that there was partial compliance with Governor Obiano’s order for businesses to open, as markets and a few banks along Ukwu Orji road in Aba opened for business.

There was however only a few vehicles on the road, just as most businesses including motor parks, banks and markets were closed.
