AWKA—THE Osita Chidoka Campaign Organisation has condemned what it described as attempts to influence the choice of who civil servants in Anambra State would vote for.

It also said the alleged act was a manifestation of the fear of defeat on the part of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA.

The organisation in a statement yesterday, said it had commenced consultation with labour leaders in the state to ensure that workers were protected.

The statement reads: ‘’While we know that the Obiano administration and APGA have been in morbid fear of the popularity and overwhelming public endorsement of our candidate, Chief Osita Chidoka and our great party, the United Progressive Party, UPP.   In their nervousness, they are seeking to drag down innocent civil servants for rejecting them.

‘’However, while we salute the courage of the workers for mounting a stiff resistance and exposing this threat, the Osita Chidoka Campaign Organisation will leave nothing to chance in protecting our civil servants, especially knowing they are dealing with very vicious elements.

‘’In this regard, this organisation has again assembled a team of lawyers to take up pro bono, any act of harassment, suspension, unwarranted transfer, query, delayed salaries, denial of promotion or any unjustified action against any civil servant before, during and after the elections.

‘’We are already working with senior labour leaders in the state to ensure that all workers at all levels are protected. We have the list of all workers and their designations and we are set to resist, with full force, and to any length, any infraction against any of them.’’
