The Anambra State Governor, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, has ordered government workers and political office holders in the state to report to their places of work on Mondays.
This is coming after the Monday sit-at-home order in the state by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
Despite IPOB repeatedly releasing statements that the sit-at-home order has been lifted, however, banks, public offices, market traders, schools remain closed on Mondays.
Soludo Get to Work Order
The statement titled ‘Attendance to Work’ which was released in Awka on Friday disclosed that the directive takes effect immediately.
Soludo has ordered that any worker not in the office on a Monday without approval will be sanctioned for misconduct.
The statement partly read, “Following the need to reposition the service for better performance and productivity, His Excellency, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, has directed that all public servants should henceforth report at their places of work on Monday as they do on other workdays.
“Consequently, absence from duty on Monday or any other official workday without approval will be viewed as serious misconduct which will attract appropriate sanctions.
“This directive takes immediate effect. Political office holders, permanent secretaries and all heads of departments are to disseminate the content of the circular to all public servants under their supervision and ensure compliance.”
