The Commissioner for Information and Public Enlightenment in Anambra State, Don Adinuba, has warned workers in the state that Mondays are no longer work-free days in Anambra.
The commissioner, however, noted that the group has since rescinded their decision ‘warning that any person who still tries to enforce the earlier decision is on his or her own and will, therefore, be dealt with accordingly’.
The statement added, “The Anambra State Government wishes to remind all individuals and organizations in the state that Monday, November 22, 2021, is not a work-free day in the state.”
“The IPOB leadership has suspended the directive requiring people to stay at home every Monday which it said would start from Monday, September 15, 2021, throughout the Southeast geopolitical zone. The IPOB leadership has in the last few days reiterated the suspension, warning that any person who still tries to enforce the earlier decision is on his or her own and will, therefore, be dealt with accordingly.”
“The IPOB leadership has kept every pledge it has made, including rescinding its decision to thwart the November 6 gubernatorial election in Anambra State. In fact, far from disrupting the election, IPOB encouraged the people of Anambra State to come out in their numbers and exercise their democratic right on November 6; the election is now recognized as easily the most peaceful and the fairest election since the State was created in 1991.
The government also urged the people of the state to go about their business without any fear of intimidation or harassment.
