Governor Okorocha made known to newsmen on Friday in Owerri, the Imo State capital, his government’s plan to jettison five working days to three working days for government workers in the state except those rendering essential services like teachers and medical personnel.

The change, he said was to encourage civil servants to engage in private practices and create multiple streams of income.

“I encourage Imo workers to find additional things to do so as to support their families because of the economic situation we are facing in Nigeria. “We are considering plans to reduce working days from five to three in Imo so that workers will use the rest of the days to work and support their families,” he said.

Gov. Okorocha had once said in an interview, “I don’t need more than 200 workers at the civil service of Imo State but I need more than 100,000 in the agricultural sector of the state. It’s like if this nation makes $1 trillion every day and ends up paying salaries with it, there still will be no progress.

“Unless we address those basic issues and get people to work in the productive sector of the economy, we cannot make any headway.”
