Governor Ben Ayade on Wednesday September 14, locked out civil servants attached to his office in Calabar for arriving late to the office.
The Head of Service, Dominic Akwaji who confirmed this, said the development followed the Governor’s return from a long trip out of the state.
“The team arrived at the governor’s office yesterday and took note of workers that were not on duty.
“Today, the team came back and some workers still came late to work despite the presence of his team yesterday and hence the decision to shut them out.”
He added that administrative measures will be taken against the affected workers.
