MayDay Celebration in Imo State Disrupted by Angry Abia State Ex-workers

The May Day celebration in Imo State nearly turned sour yesterday as people disengaged from Abia State stormed the venue in red attires and complained bitterly about their plight.

The sacked workers, numbering over 1,600, were particularly irked that they were yet to be absorbed into the state civil service or recalled by Abia State government, despite Okorocha's previous promises.

They expressed disgust that their previous representations to government on the need to absorb them into the service had remained a mirage, while a number of their colleagues had died out of frustration and starvation.

The Coordinator of Aba Zone, Mrs. Angela Madu-Okoli, who spoke jointly with her counterpart from Umuahia Zone, Mr. Peter Oluigbo, told journalists in tears that none of the callously sacked Imo indigenes had been paid a kobo.

They debunked the recent news that filtered in from Government House, Umuahia, that the sacked workers should come for reinstatement, stressing that the official document to the effect was not signed by anybody.

Jenny Chisom's 12 Codes of Conduct for Men That Rivals Any Male Code

It's been a tough past week so I am grateful for Sunday heralding a new week.
I have been burdened to create a Code of Conduct for members of the League of Extraordinary Men (LExM) on Facebook. So while I couldn't attend service, I sat down and wrote this down on my note pad, then typed it.
This came in a bid to begin to restructure the group to ensure it is serving the right purpose and the right men.
