Criticisms trail holiday to Imo civil servants

| December 27, 2012 | 0 Comments

SCORES of Imo people and bodies have continued to condemn the two-week public holidays offered to civil servants in the state by the Rochas Okorocha administration a few days ago.

The governor had recently asked workers controlled by the state government to proceed on holidays from December 21 to January 7, 2013.

Later, a statement signed by Okorocha’s Special Assistant, Media (Print), Ebere Uzokwa made a slight change, stating that those on essential services, such as revenue generating agency, hospital services were exempted from the holidays.

In its reaction, the Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state, Chief Blyden Amajirionwu, said the decision was “reckless”, chairman of the All Nigeria People’s Party (ANPP), Dr. Vitalis Orikeze Ajumbe, decried such action, stating that there was nowhere in the world such had happened except in Imo State, Nigeria, while a chieftain of Civil Liberties Organisation, Uche Durueke warned that the action could have “far reaching negative effect on the people.”
