Governor Babagana Zulum of Borno state has given a note of warning to the civil servants in the state that he would not tolerate indiscipline, adding that sanctions will be served to erring workers accordingly.
The governor stated this on Friday, May 31, when he paid a surprise visit to the state secretariat where he only saw three state workers that had resumed at exactly 8:30am, Daily Trust reports.
Legit.ng notes that the governor said: "No food for lazy persons, we came here 8:30am, we only met only three workers and now 9: 30 we have 135 workers that have resume so far.”
Governor Zulum said workers must justify the salaries being paid to them by the state government, adding that hardworking and dedicated staff would be rewarded.
He said: “The hard working and dedicated staff shall be rewarded. I have given directives to pay level grant to these 135 staff that are around, immediately. We will ensure that these 135 staff that are around get all they are entitled to.”
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that eminent lawyer, Professor Itse Sagay (SAN), called on the All Progressives Congress (APC) to return to court concerning the Supreme Court's ruling in Zamfara and Rivers.
According to Professor Sagay, there is remedy in law for the APC on the Supreme Court’s voiding of its electoral victories in Zamfara.
He asked the APC to apply to the apex court for a review of the verdict as well as the one barring the party from fielding candidates in Rivers state during the last elections.
The Supreme Court transferred APC’s victories in Zamfara state to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for alleged irregularities in the ruling party’s primaries, after a lower court ruled the same on Wednesday, April 24.
To Sagay, the verdicts “are a travesty of justice".
He said in a statement sent to journalists: “The Zamfara and Rivers state judgments are a national tragedy. We should not allow our legal system to throw up such unimaginable injustice."
