By Chidi Nkwopara OWERRI—Former Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Chief Emeka Ihedioha, has described the recent  dismissal of over 3,000 workers by Governor Rochas Okorocha, as “most reckless, insensitive and completely lacking in economic sense”.Chief Ihedioha, who reacted through his media aide, Mr. Chibuike Onyeukwu, equally condemned the scrapping of 19 government parastatals, agencies and departments.

“There is no doubt that the Nigerian economy isfacing a downturn as a result of dwindling oil revenue but the solution is not arbitrary disengagement of workers and scrapping of key parastatals, such as the Hospital Management Board, Imo Water Corporation, Imo State Investment Promotion Agency, Imo State Library Board, Agricultural Development Programme and others”, Ihedioha said.

It was the considered opinion of the former Deputy Speaker that “having anchored his election campaign mantra on job, industry,  factory and employment, Imo people looked forward to more jobs, employment opportunities and improved working conditions instead of disengaging the already demoralized workers”.

He condemned Governor Okorocha’s penchant for sacking thousands of workers as the  only alternative to addressing economic issues facing the state.

“Choosing to sack thousands of workers as the only viable option to tackling the state’s dwindled economic base is unfortunate, senseless, uncharitable and anachronistic”, Chief Ihedioha said.
