Ebonyi suspends Attorney-General for improper dressing

25 November 2012, 08:48

Abakaliki - The Government of Ebonyi on Saturday announced the suspension of the Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice, Mr Ben Igwenyi, and two other commissioners for improper dressing.

This is contained in a statement made available to newsmen by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr Onyekachi Eni.

The statement said that the other commissioners were Mr Hyacinth Ikpo, Culture and Tourism and Chukwuma Nwandugo, Works and Transport.

According to the statement signed by Gov. Martins Elechi, the suspended commissioners are to proceed on three months suspension for improper dressing to a state banquet.

The state banquet was in honour of the Society for Gynaecologists of Nigeria.

The statement also said that the affected commissioners had been barred from attending any official government function within the period of their suspension.

It said their mode of dressing should conform to the attitudinal change policy of the administration.

The statement said the commissioners wore jean trousers and T-shirts to the banquet.

"The state will not tolerate any form of indecent dressing from any of its officials; the attitudinal change policy must be imbibed by everybody.

"There is no ‘sacred cow’ in this administration,’’ the statement quoted Elechi as saying.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Elechi had been critical about the mode of dressing by members of the State Executive Council.

NAN recalls that the governor had previously suspended his personal cleaner for dressing improperly to work.
