Imo - The supposed dismissal of over 3 000 civil servants by Imo State Government has continued to generate tension in the state, Vanguard reports.
Investigations revealed that most of the affected workers in the affected departments and agencies were still going to work despite the directive by the state governor, Rochas Okorocha.
The workers claimed that since due process was followed before they were employed, the state government should also strictly follow due process to disengage them from service.
They said it was inappropriate for the governor to sack workers through the airwaves of the state radio and television.
