EDO PDP: CIVIL SERVANTS ARE APOLITICAL, THEY SHOULD NOT BE ORDERED TO SUPPORT APC

Civil servants in Edo state  has allegedly been given directives to adorn themselves and their offices with APC campaign material such as arm bands, party’s posters and flags or risk being sacked.

One of the oppositions in the state, The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has condemned directive to all civil servants.

State Publicity Secretary of the party in Edo, Mr Chris Nehikhare, in a statement said whereas, “Civil servants are supposed to be apolitical, the trend where they were ordered through text messages ostensibly from the Head of Service to immediately adorn the arm bands, paste posters and put the APC flag on their desks, ‘with immediate effect’ is a tragedy.

“Although the text messages were also forwarded to local government employees in the state, indications are that they will not comply owing to the several months’ arrears of unpaid salaries.

“Even the orders to the head of Service who was also said to have received orders to proceed to collect consignments of the arm bands, flags and posters of the APC candidate from the party secretariat along Airport road, Benin City, is pathetic as it shows a desperation on the part of APC government to win the September 10 elections at all costs”.
