ALEX OTTI SACKS WORKERS EMPLOYED BY IKPEAZU
Abia State Governor Dr Alex Otti said that civil servants employed by the former governor of the state, Dr Okezie Ikpeazu at the twilight of his administration have been disengaged from the service.
This was contained in a memo sent to the head of various ministries, departments, agencies and government parastatals by the state Head of Service, Onyii Wamah obtained by The Nation.
According to the memo, the affected workers were those employed in the state civil service after December 2022. The memo read ”I write to notify all Ministries, Departments, Agencies and Parastate of Government that payment of December 2022 salary.
”This is a result of various anomalies identified in the submissions earlier made by the various ministries, departments and agencies (MDAs). Accordingly, Directors of Administration and Directors of Finance are to submit to the Accountant-General’s office their Nominal Rolls, Audit Clearance, as well as, their Salary Printouts for the month of December 2022, not later than a dose of work on Monday, 26 June 2023.
”Any MDA that fails to submit the aforementioned documents to the Accountant-General’s office risks the chance of not receiving her June 2023 salary payments. All concerned are to ensure strict compliance”.
