After completing their five-day warning strike on Friday, labour leaders have directed all civil servants in Imo State to resume duty, even as Governor Rochas Okorocha urged the authorities of the West African College of Physicians, Nigerian chapter (WACP), to establish state of art research centre in the state.

The Guardian monitored compliance on Saturday and observed that workers in the government employment, who work on Saturday, actually reported for duty, while others are expected to resume on Monday.

The chairman of the state chapter of the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC), Austin Chilapku, assisted by the chairman of the Joint Public Service Negotiating Council (JPSNC), Augustina Ogini and the Nigeria Medical Association (NMA) state chairman, Dr. Hyacinth Emele announced the suspension in Owerri, the Imo State capital.
