Staff auditing: Obiano calls for patience, understanding

Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State has called on the staff of the Ministry of Justice to exercise a little more patience with the state government, over the on-going staff auditing and verification exercise in the state.
He made the call through his Senior Special Assistant on Media, Strategic Communications and Legislative Matters, Prince Oliver Okpala.

Okpala, who made this plea in Awka yesterday, explained that the exercise, which is already coming to an end, is to ensure that ghost workers who have been feeding fat from the state resources are flushed out.

The governor’s aide said the exercise, which is in line with due process and zero tolerance for corruption by the Obiano administration, means well for the state workforce, as existence of ghost workers in the payroll has negatively affected staff advancement, welfare and progress.

He assured that once this exercise is completed, genuine staff of the judiciary will be paid their 2016 leave allowances in full, without delay, as finances for this have been earmarked.

He called on leaders and members of JUSON to refuse attempts to embark on any strike action or any other such act, in the interest of the existing peace and cordial relationship between the state government and the state civil service and reminded the staff of the judiciary that any action along that line will make them appear confrontational and against the long established cordial relationship of the Obiano administration and the state workforce, whereby he has consistently ensured that workers’ salaries and emoluments are paid.

Okpala also urged JUSON not to allow itself to be used by political opponents of the administration in the state, adding that efforts should be made by all to maintain the partner- in- progress stance of the present government and the entire state workforce.
