Sit-At-Home: Soludo dares IBOB, directs workers to be on duty post Mondays

Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, Anambra State Governor, has directed all civil servants in the state to be at work every Monday like every other working day of the week.

TheCEO reports that Mondays have been declared ‘sit-at-home’ in Southeast regions by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) since the resumed trial of their leader, Mr Nnamdi Kanu.

However, Prof. Soludo on Friday, through the Head of Service, Barr. Theodora Igwegbe ordered workers to always ensure they are at their duty posts on Mondays.

In a circular dated today, 25th March 2022, which was signed by Igwegbe and sighted by DAILY POST, Soludo warned that absence from work on Mondays will attract sanctions.

Part of the memo read: “Following the need to reposition the service for better performance and productivity, His Excellency, the governor of Anambra State, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo has directed that henceforth, all public servants should report at their places of work every Monday like every other weekday.

“Consequently, absence from work on Monday, or any other workday without any approval will be viewed as serious misconduct, which will attract appropriate sanctions. This directive takes immediate effect.”

Soludo had last year lamented the continued boycott of work on Mondays in the South East, saying that the zone loses an estimated N19.6billion every Monday.

During his inaugural speech as governor, last two weeks, Soludo had extended an olive branch to all armed groups, saying he was ready to engage them in a round table discussion. He lamented that many criminals now hide under freedom fighting to perpetuate criminality.
