The Abia State Government has started executing the implementation process of total reabsorbing of the non-indigene staff that were disengaged some years back.
Governor Okezie Ikpeazu, during an interactive session with them at Umuahia, said that government was willingly to recall all of them in a systematic procedure, so as not to take more than it can afford to pay.
Calling on them to co-operate, he said that the ongoing civil service biometric verification has created opportunities that close up loopholes of wastage.
Although some of the disengaged workers expressed appreciation for the effort, they appealed to government to recover them at once because the suffering and state of unemployment was taking a toll on their families.
Out of about 4,000 non-indigene workers of Abia State that were disengaged, only more than 2,000 have been recalled to work, while processes are on going to reinstate the others.
