Governor Rochas Okorocha has accused the leadership of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) of mischief, saying that the new work regime of the State Government for all civil servants and its policy of back to land for agriculture were irrevocable.

Okorocha stated this yesterday in apparent response to announcement by the leaders of the workers union in the state who thanked him for reversing the policy. He said the policy of the State Government which requires that civil servants in the state only work from Monday to Wednesday and used Thursday and Friday for farming stands.

The governor, who spoke through his Media Aide, Mr. Sam Onwuemeodo, described the announcement of the NLC leaders as the height of mischief. He stressed that neither he nor the state executive council has reversed the policy as it is in the best interest of the state and the civil servants.

“The announcement by the Labour leadership in the state was the height of mischief and also shows how their spirits are working. The Labour leaders in the state have continued to oppose all the policies of the state government not minding the importance or popularity of such policies. For anybody or group to oppose the Back to land for agriculture policy is very unfortunate. In fact anybody that opposes it hates the public servants in the state and also the state,” he said.
