The Abia State Governor, Okezie Ikpeazu has directed as a matter of policy that henceforth, the Rule of ‘no work, no pay’ applies in the state.
The Secretary to the State Government, Chris Ezem stated this on Tuesday in Umuahia and expressed worry at the spate of the incessant strike by some government establishments as the only means of pressing home their demands.
He pointed out that the action is counterproductive and retrogressive.
The government said that it is committed to pay all genuine workers their entitlements, and would resist any attempt by some politicians to blackmail and undermine the well-being of innocent citizens by politicizing workers’ welfare.
And to this, all government agencies, law enforcement agencies, and the general public are by this notice invited to note the above policy for compliance.

The theme for the event was; ‘Performance Management System: Impact on the Nigerian Public Service.’
The Governor expressed empathy for income earners, especially in light of the dwindling economic situation in the Country.
