Good News For Anambra State Judiciary

Staff of the Anambra State Judiciary and Ministry of Justice, have been called upon to exercise a little more patience with the State Government, over the on going staff auditing and verification exercise in the state.
The Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Media, Strategic Communications and Legislative Matters, Prince Oliver Okpala, who made this plea in Awka today, explained that the exercise, which is already coming to an end, is to ensure that ghost workers who have been feeding fat from their resources are flushed out.
According to Prince Okpala, 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 been affecting the 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 eye marked.
Prince Okpala 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.
He 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.
The Senior Special Assistant urged the 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.
