Any civil servant who failed to report to work on Monday will not be paid and will be sacked, Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi, has said.
Many residents have been observing the sit-at-home order called by the Indigenous People of Biafra every Monday since August 9, and despite its suspension, residents are still observing the order because of fear.
However, Umahi, who condemned the development said aside ensuring that defaulting civil servants didn’t receive their salary, he would equally ensure that they are out of service.
The governor disclosed this during an All Progressives Congress stakeholders meeting, in Abakaliki, on Sunday.
He said, “Any shop that is not opened tomorrow must be taken over by government. Our South-East is about to be destroyed, but we have to fight to stop it.
“A lot of federal agencies have placed Ebonyi State on red alert. I give you example, the Aviation Ministry; it took my going to Abuja before they were able to come to give certain approvals for our airport.
“The other Monday, not this immediate past one, many civil servants did not go to work. We decided not to pay them, but the spirit of God prevailed and we paid them. But anybody who fails to go to work tomorrow (Monday) will definitely cease to be a civil servant. The security agencies must take note of this.”
