Abia State civil workforce have been warned that ‘indecent dressing’ would no longer be condoned in the service.

The state Head of Service, Onyii Wamah, warned that wearing of dreadlocks, coloured hairdo, etc, would no longer be tolerated.

He spoke on Saturday during the 2019 promotions, confirmation and conversion examinations, saying that he has given them up to Monday “to remove them or face disciplinary action”.

The Permanent Secretaries, Heads of Ministerial and non-ministerial departments were also instructed to monitor what their staff wear to office “so as to stop further degradation and ridiculing of the public service”.

He warned them to divest themselves of dressing “that portray them as highly insensitive, undisciplined and irresponsible officers”.

He further reminded them that “as intermediary and purveyors of government policies and programmes, you owe it as a sacred duty not to defame, ridicule and bring the government low in the estimation of the public”.
