Imo State Government Sacks 1,400 Local Government Workers – NULGE

Imo state

Over 1000 local governments workers were sacked in Imo last week, according to the state’s chapter of the Nigeria Union of Local Government Employees.

The chairman, Mr Ndubuisi Uchehara, while confirming the sack of 1,400 workers in Imo state on Thursday, declared that however, the union would not confront the state government over it.

He said,

“As a responsible union, we only act when the rights of legitimate worker are infringed upon.
“When you are an absentee worker, labour cannot protect you when you are visited with the right punishment.
“When you reside in Abuja and draw monthly salaries from a local government in Imo, such persons are not worth NULGE’s time and efforts.
“But there are also cases of people, who were wrongfully treated; the union is already handling such cases with Gov. Rochas Okorocha.”

He expressed optimism that people with proven cases of injustice would have their situations addressed.

“Such persons should not panic; we shall put in everything to resolve their matters,” he said.

The sack hit workers from across the 27 Local Government Areas of Imo state.
