Enugu—An Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Odinmaigbo, has condemned the two weeks holiday granted civil servants in Imo State, saying it amounted to carrying theatrics in governance to a ridiculous level.

Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State granted civil servants in the state two weeks holiday to celebrate Christmas.

However, the Secretary General of Odinmaigbo, Chief Maxi Okwu in a statement in Enugu yesterday, said: ‘’The recent declaration of two week public holiday in Imo state by the Governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha is a great dis-service to the enterprising Imo state people in particular, and Ndigbo in general.

“This stunt in our view carries theatrics in governance to an absurd level. The havoc its spiral effect would have on the economic life of Imo people is better imagined than described.”
