Kwara gov locks out workers, decries lateness

Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq of Kwara State on Monday decried the poor attitude to work by the state’s civil servants.

The governor, in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Rafiu Ajakaye, said he was not happy that he got to the government secretariat at about 7.55am on Monday and for over one hour, found a few workers at their workplaces.

 “Most offices were still under lock and key at 9am. I felt very unhappy about such an attitude and I want a change of attitude on the part of our workers towards their work.

“Late coming and poor attitude to work certainly will not be tolerated. The civil service should be business-like and efficient in service delivery,” the statement read.

He stated that the governor made the comments following an unscheduled visit to government ministries and departments in Ilorin, the state capital.

It was gathered that hundreds of workers, who came late to work, were still locked out by the time AbdulRazaq left the secretariat a few minutes before 10am.

AbdulRazaq however during his visit to inspect facilities at the Children’s Hospital at Centre Igboro, Ilorin on Sunday commended the staff for their dedication to work.

“The governor wishes to specially commend the staff of the Children’s Hospital for their exemplary service beyond the call of duty. He appreciates them and urges them to continue that way,” the statement added.

Meanwhile, the governor had directed the Kwara State Scholarship Board to present a memo on the state of student bursary and scholarship.

He gave the directive during a tour of the secretariat, adding that the board should direct all students to open accounts. He also asked the board to adopt e-payment for the disbursement of bursary.
