Governor Aliyu Locks Out Government Workers Over Lateness

On Thursday, June 6, Sokoto government house workers were locked out by Governor Ahmed Aliyu of Sokoto State.

Governor Aliyu had reportedly driven himself to the Government House around 8:30am only to find out that the majority of the staff were not in their various offices.

According to the report, he met only cleaners and one nurse at the Government House Clinic. This made him order the security guards to lock up the gate and not to allow entrance to anybody.
Reacting to the development, Aliyu said, “This is not a matter of joke. What is expected from any serious government is to ensure the timely payment of workers’ salaries. When I came in, I paid two months’ salary within three weeks. That is why I drove myself to the office because my driver 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). 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.”
