Anambra State Governor, Chief Willie Obiano, has declared Thursday and Friday work-free days in the State.

The governor made the declaration during the 2021 Public Service Day Celebration, held at the Jerome Udeorji Secretariat Complex, Awka.

According to Obiano, the holiday is to enable the state workforce to prepare themselves for Saturday’s governorship election.

The governor urged workers to mobilize their neighbours, adding that the election will hold as scheduled.

He thanked the state workforce for the cooperation between them and his administration, stressing that he had fulfilled his promises to them.


‘Soludo, my man’

While declaring that it is his desire for Professor Soludo to succeed him, Obiano urged them to vote for him.

The Governor explained that his support for Soludo was a result of his pedigree and confidence in his ability to develop and manage Anambra resources.

He assured the people that he would perform better than others if elected.

In his speech, the Head of Service, Barrister Harry Uduh, said Obiano had kept faith with Anambra workers since the inception of his administration, pointing out that the governor has been consistent with payment of salaries, pensions, leave allowances, periodic civil service training among other incentives.


More jobs

The APGA candidate in Saturday’s gubernatorial election, Professor Chukwuma Soludo, flanked by his running mate, Dr Onyekachukwu Ibezim, promised to stand on the foundation laid by the governor for consolidation and continuity.

He revealed his plans of job creation for a greater number of Anambra people as a way of maintaining the pride of the state.

He described civil servants as the foundation of every government.

Professor Soludo said, if elected, he would implement salary and other payments adjustments once the finances of the state can carry the adjustments.

He called on the state’s civil servants to come out and exercise their franchise in Saturday’s election which he said is very critical to the progress and advancement of the state.
