Gov. Okalia Warns Civil Servants: Work On Mondays Or We Treat You Like Amba Sympathisers


By Andrew Nsoseka

The Governor of the Southwest Region, Bernard Okalia Bilai, has issued a stern warning to civil servants in the Region, through their service and regional heads, to go to work on Mondays, or risk being labelled and treated as sympathisers of Separatist fighters.

The Governor’s warning was made as he chaired a meeting of the various service heads during a regional coordination meeting in the Southwest Region on Tuesday, January 29, at the conference room of the Southwest Governor’s Office.

Governor Okalia asserted that the decision of civil servants to stay at home on Mondays and work only for four days in a week is an offence that will no longer be tolerated.

The Governor posited that the act of abstaining from work on Mondays, violates the Constitution and that, henceforth, action will be taken.

He warned them that, should anyone not be found at their working premises on Mondays, they will be considered as allies of Separatists and will be treated as such.

The Governor lamented that, less than 30 percent of public offices are open on Mondays, as a majority of civil servants have decided to cave into calls for ghost towns.

The Governor told the delegates and heads of services that the administration, in collaboration with the Mayor of Buea, Patrick Ekema Esunge, have been working to ensure that other services like the transport and business sectors are operational again.

Okalia instructed the service heads to always be present at their offices and jobsites on Monday. He also charged them to ensure that all workers under their authority are present at work on Mondays.

It is apparent that, in the coming weeks, Governor Okalia would dispatch control teams at various Regional Delegations and offices manned by civil servants, to evaluate and take stock of those present at work and those who yield to calls for ghost town.

The ghost town phenomenon, that started as an act of defiance and civil disobedience called for by the outlawed Anglophone Civil Society Consortium has crippled commercial, transport and other aspects of normal life in Anglophone Cameroon on Mondays.

The calls were later implemented by Separatist Fighters who, in most cases, use the threat of force to compel civil servants who are under pressure to respect Government order, to cave in and obey the dictates of those calling and implementing a Monday void of regular working activity.
