Lateness and Absenteeism: Imoke Reads Riot Act to Commissioners and SAs

In Breaking News, Reports

by crossriverwatch admin

The Cross River State Governor, Senator Liyel Imoke has read the riot act to his commissioners and special advisers over complacency to duty.

Crossriverwatch gathered that the governor expressed his displeasure with the attitude of his political aides to official public functions in the state at the last state executive council meeting following their late appearance at the Octocber 1 independence anniversary ceremonies. The governor on the occasion warned them seriously urging them to sit up or be sanctioned accordingly.

A top government source told crossriverwatch that “it is almost becoming perpetual for political office official holders in the state to either arrive late or not come at all to public functions including those that are attended by his excellency. That amounts to disrespect. Look at the last independence celebration, his excellency, Senator Imoke got to the venue of the event long before some of the aides started arriving. Is that a responsible attitude to public duty?” the source asked.

Our findings revealed that some of the political aides had taken advantage of the independence holidays to rush to their country homes in their local governments hoping to arrive early on Monday for the celebrations. Most of them were however unable to meet make it as scheduled and either arrived late or could not arrive until after the conclusion of the events marking the commemoration of the independence anniversary by the state government.

  • They know that Imoke spend most of his time in his bed room due to some health challenges, so they didnt know that he will make it, they decided to either traveled home or arrived late.

  • I’ve read a few good stuff here. Certainly worth bookmarking for revisiting. I surprise how much effort you put to make such a magnificent informative website.

  • Hope Democratic Party isnt amazed and shocked at the riot act read by crs governor over the incredible failure of elected and appointed officials to add value to the lives of the people since 2007.the exco members and aides are bunch of incompetent, visionless and inept persons who have no business in a serious minded govrnment.we have followed and their activities,our conclusion is they have only looted the resources of our state ruthlessly and the verifiable democratic dividends since their appointment are seen in their inexplicable fat accounts,massive,multi-million mansios in calabar,abuja,lagos,port-harcourt,a galaxy of girlfriends/ concubines,they now criuse around town in expensive automobiles especially suvs at odd hours at marian red light zone.And we ask what is a serious minded and focussed commissioner or special adviser doing at a crime-infested hang-out zone amidst company of commercial sex workers,drug addicts and other criminal elements at 1.00am, instead of remuminating on how to solve problems of the people and ways to add value to their lives.what we have in crs is blatant lack of work knowledge coloured with a salad cream of arrogance. All this is a deliberate effort to hide his ineptitude.we are doomed in crs with the present crop of exco members who are selfish,mentally lazy,inept and inefficient,We make bold to submit that thier stock in trade is brazen selfishness with avaricious quest to steal public funds and corner all the available contracts clearly manifesting unacceptable conflict of all the state ministries,none has witnessed any visible turnaround that has impacted on the lives of the people rather they have shameless experise in exploitation and mindless extortion of the poor like DOPT, CRS IRS, MOE,MOH CRSMRA through various task force,revenue gangs.
