Skeletal activities have resumed on Monday in Awka, the Anambra State capital, as workers are beginning to comply with Governor Chukwuma Soludo’s directive for workers to start resuming at their duty posts every Monday, just like any other day.
The governor had through the Head of Service, Mr Theodora Igwegbe, issued a statement on Friday, directing workers to start resuming normal activities every Monday.
When our correspondent visited the secretariat complex, Awka, the workers who had resumed duty as of 9:00 am, expressed delight and urged the state government to provide adequate security and transport to enable full compliance with the directive.
However, in Onitsha, Nnewi, and environs, the level of compliance was very low as markets, motor parks, banks, offices, and schools remained shut.
Onitsha is the commercial nerve centre of the state and the governor had already directed market leaders and motor parks operators to ensure they opened for operations from April 4, 2022.
Although the Monday sit-at-home order, which was introduced by the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra has been suspended by the group, the people are still complying due to fear of being attacked by hoodlums.
