The governor had paid an unscheduled visit to the secretariat Monday morning and caught 31 workers reporting late.
News reports said the governor has warned civil servants in the state to shun every act of lateness and truancy; that, whoever engages in late-coming and truancy may be shown the way out of service if he or she remains recalcitrant.
The Governor apprehended 31 civil servants who reported to work after 8 am and directed that a disciplinary committee be set up to try them with appropriate sanctions.
“Workers coming late to work will no longer be allowed.31 workers who came late today begged,but they will be punished”, Fayose tweeted Monday afternoon, with more photographs of his gate-keeping encounter with civil servants.
The Head of Service, Dr. Olugbenga, while reacting said, several warnings, interface and memos have been issued on the need for civil servants to shun lateness and absenteeism.
He noted that, it is time to enforce strict adherence to the civil service rules; adding that workers have to sit up and reciprocate the gesture of the government which has made the payment of salaries and allowances of workers its priority.
