Sokoto governor locks Govt House gate over staff lateness

Ahmed Aliyu, the governor of Sokoto State, shut the Government House gate on Thursday to prevent staff members from entering late.

According to reports, the governor drove himself to Government House at 8:30 a.m.only to find that most of the staff hadn’t showed up in their assigned offices.

He only saw to a nurse and a cleaning at the Government House Clinic. He did, however, give the order to the security officers to close the gate and prevent entry.

The gate reportedly stayed closed until well before one in the afternoon. According to Daily Trust, a large number of top staff members, including some of the governor’s advisers, were shut out.

Revealing reason for his action, Aliyu explained that;

This is not a matter of joke.

What is expected from any serious government is to ensure a timely payment of workers’ salary.

When I came in, I paid two months’ salaries within three weeks.That is why I drove myself to the office because my drivers did not come in time.

But I will not tell you my next line of action because you too came late (referring to the interviewers), he said.

The governor added that “I promised the people of Sokoto State that I would not betray their trust nor allow any public officers to do so.

You either work or return our money. You cannot collect our money without justifying it, he said.
