HEAD, STATE CIVIL SERVICE LOCKS ENTRY GATE AFTER 8AM AGAINST WORKERS
Head of Civil Service Mrs. Ekerebong Akpan today locked out over 200 workers at state secretariat for lateness to work.
It is a general practice for most civil servants to be late to work. This could be as a result of what they stand to earn at the end of every month as salary. The low pay earnings also affects the attitude to work by State Civil Service workers all over the country.
In a chat with some of the State Civil Servants stress that the money they earn every month is never enough to take care of their immediate needs. They also emphasize that if they come early to work they wont be able to meet up their needs. While some say they need to attend to some businesses which does not strike a balance with their civil service.
Also, they say it’s high time the Government look into their wages. It is what affects their attitude to work. At the same time, it affects productivity.
Consequently, lateness will be in check much often.
I wonder when they will sanitize the system!!.
