The executive chairman of the Cross River State Universal Basic Education Board, SUBEB, Dr Stephen Odey was reported to have locked out staff of the State Universal Basic Education Board, SUBEB, for showing up late at work.
The incident which happened today, Friday 28th July 2017, has since gone viral.
Dr. Odey was reported to have expresses his disappointment at the uncaring attitude of the workers to their job adding that the action is aimed at instilling discipline among staff and ensure quick service delivery to all stakeholders.
He added: “I was not impressed when I got here by 8 o’clock and most offices were locked, nobody should force us to do our work. People are looking for this job, you have it and you are taking it for granted.”
Dr. Odey was reported to have chided the staff to be punctual and remain committed.
He added: “I will pardon you today without query because this is the first time, next time would not be the same, we should all try to support government efforts by showing commitment to work and being at our duty post at all times.”
