Ayade locks Cross River workers out for lateness

Cross Rivers state governor, Ben Ayade, locked out Geographic Information Agency state workers for being late to their place of primary assignment.

Speaking to a worker who pleaded anonymity, he complained of low morale as the reason behind their lateness to work.

Reacting to the development, the state chairman of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Comrade Benedict Ukpepi described the situation as a shame to the civil service.
“Labour can only talk to workers to follow service regulations but the head of service should talk to the governor. Labour cannot support any wrong thing because civil servants are supposed to be in office by 7:30am, while work starts by 8 am but the approach of locking workers out is what we are complaining about.
