Civil servants who were late to work were on Monday locked out of the Ogun State secretariat at Oke Mosan in Abeokuta.

The two gates, leading to the complex, were locked at 8am, a development which caught many latecomers unaware.

Secretary to the State Government, Mr. Taiwo Adeoluwa, who frowned at workers’ lateness, warned that government would no longer condone their nonchalant attitude to work.

He noted that the civil service rules and regulation on punctuality were unambiguous, urging workers to adhere strictly to them to avoid sanctions.

“This action is a routine exercise to ensure that civil servants know the essence of punctuality and imbibe it as a virtue and not aimed at frustrating or scaring anybody,” he said.

“If Governor Ibikunle Amosun could make it to the office before 7.30am, there can be no excuse for anyone who comes late to work.”

Also reacting to workers’ lateness, the state Head of Service, Mrs. Modupe Adekunle, said all the latecomers would be queried in line with civil service rules.

She disclosed that the exercise would be a routine one, adding that all permanent secretaries and heads of department had been instructed to submit the workers’ attendance registers to her office for necessary actions against those that got to the office late.
