Commissioner for Information, Tourism and Public Utilities, Chief Vitalis Orikeze Ajumbe, disclosed this on Wednesday in Owerri in chat with newsmen.

Ajumbe said the cancellation was one of the decisions reached on the new work week policy during the last State Executive Council, SEC, meeting.

“Having given approval for the immediate implementation of the new work policy, the beneficiaries will no longer be entitled to annual leave, casual leave, sick leave and unnecessary absence from work, for all manner of reasons,” he said.

He explained that workers in essential services such as medical personnel, teachers, and media practitioners, would stick to the five-day work week policy, adding that they would not be denied of sick, and annual leaves.
Ajumbe allayed fears that the jettisoned of the five-day work week policy by the state government was a ploy to reduce workers’ salaries and emoluments.

His word, “I must make it very clear that the new policy will not in any way; affect the take home pay of workers. Government is giving it’s word on this.”
