Sit-At-Home And Be Punished, Imo Govt Warns Civil Servants

Imo State Government has warned civil servants in the state that any of them that observed Monday sit at home order would be punished for staying away from the office.

A statement by the Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Hon Declan Mbadiwe Emelumba, said adequate arrangements for security is put in place to ensure they are in the office to do their work.

The statement reads: “This is to inform all indigenes and residents of Imo state that Government has not authorised any public holiday or sit at home across the state, either today, Monday, March 21, 2022 or any other working day.

“Consequently, everyone is advised to go about his or her normal duties.

“Civil servants are particularly advised to ensure that they are in their offices discharging their responsibilities.

Those who abstain from duty without authorisation will be sanctioned accordingly

“Government hereby assures all indigenes and residents of adequate security as they go about their lawful activities.”

Recall that TheNiche reported late last year that the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) declared that it will treat anybody caught using its name to enforce non-existent sit-at-home as a traitor.
