Rochas Okorocha, governor of Imo state, has scrapped all kinds of leave in the state, following the introduction of the ‘back to land for agriculture’ programme that forces public servants to work for only three days a week.

Okorocha says public servants in the state will now work on Mondays to Wednesdays and farm on Thursday and Fridays.

Vitalis Ajumbe, Okorocha’s commissioner for information, said the decision to scrap leave was made at the last meeting of the state executive council (SEC).

“Having given approval for the immediate implementation of the new work policy, the beneficiaries will no longer be entitled to annual leave, casual leave, sick leave and unnecessary absence from work, for all manner of reasons,” he told journalists.

He said essential services workers including nurses, doctors, teachers, journalists, broadcasters will still work the regular days.

He said workers will still earn the same pay.

“I must make it very clear that the new policy will not in any way affect the take home pay of workers. Government is giving it’s word on this,” Ajumbe added.
