The Campaign for Democracy (CD) has commended Gov. Theodore Orji of  Abia  State for recalling over 7,700 sacked non-indigene civil servants in the state, who were sacked over two years ago.

In a press  conference on Tuesday in Onitsha, Anambra; Dede Uzor A. Uzor, Chairman  of CD South-East Region, said that the move was an ideal one in order to further cement Igbo unity.

Uzor however  urged the Abia State  government to make public the number of the non-indigenes re-engaged by  the government so far.

He announced that CD is giving Gov. Orji  14-day ultimatum to make the number and identities of the re-engaged  sacked workers in the national dailies.

Uzor, also called on the governor to render an unreserved public apology for the uncalled  act; which he had reversed adding that their salaries and allowances  should be paid up-till date.

“While an unreserved public  apology addressed to the non-indigenes, Ohaneze Ndi-Igbo and Ndi-Igbo in general should be made public,’’ he said.

He said that its  only if he do all this that CD can call on Ohanaze Ndi-Igbo to re-admit  Gov. Orji as a returned prodigal son of Igbo land.

“Since his  former action, which bordered on sack of his fellow Igbo brothers and  sisters, was sacrilegious as far as Igbo land is concerned,’’ Uzor  noted.

He said that henceforth, Ohaneze Ndi-Igbo should put in  place strict punitive measures to deal with any Igbo personality that  treats Ndi-Igbo with disdain anywhere within and outside the country.

It would be recalled that on Wednesday, Oct. 30; Abia State Government  recalled hundreds of its civil service workforce, who are non-indigenes  of the state but from the South-East, after sacking them for  two  years.
