A philanthropist in Imo state, Johnpaul Ochemba, yesterday commended Governor Rochas Okorocha for lifting embargo on local government staff getting to level 17.


Ochemba said this to newsmen in Owerri, adding that with such a gesture, the workers would be motivated to put in their best.

It should be recalled that Okorocha had suspended the Imo State Accountant General, Stella Udogwu, over what he described as delay in releasing money for workers’ salaries for the month of October and November.

Ochemba said: “We want to also applaud the governor for approving the sum of N2.5million as car allowance for each of the Directors of Administration of the 27 LGAs in the state.

“ I’m commending the governor because this  will boost the morale of workers.  The workers should be gracious to Okorocha and his Rescue Mission Government.

“This is what we call a practical way of putting smiles on the faces of Imo workers.
