Cross River State Governor, Ben Ayade, today suspended two top government officials indefinitely for reporting late to work. Those suspended are the state’s Commissioner for Water Resources, Ntufam Ojie and the Managing Director of Water Board Limited, Dr. Oju Igile.
The Governor announced their suspension during an unscheduled tour of Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) to ensure that civil and public servants comply strictly with basic work ethics in Cross River, a state in southern Nigeria.
He stated that it is an act of indiscipline for appointees not to be at their duty post before 9.00am. Governor Ayade stressed that the suspension will serve as a deterrent to other government employees.
