Again, Ayade excludes officials for being late

Cross River State officials were locked out again for being late for the second time in two days after being locked out of the governor’s office on Wednesday.

The action was extended to other offices on Thursday, as the gates of the Cross River Geographic Information Agency, an agency under the Department of Lands, were closed and workers walked around.

They parked their cars along the road before besieging the gate.

In response, Nigeria’s Labor Congress state president, Comrade Benedict Ukpepi, described the development as a disgrace to the civil service.

“Labour can only talk to workers to comply with service regulations, but the head of the service should talk to the governor. Labor cannot support anything wrong as civil servants should be on duty at 7:30am while work starts at 8am, but we are complaining about the approach to excluding workers,” he said.

The workers complained that low morale was responsible for being late for work.
