Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State, yesterday, suspended the Head of Administration of Egor Local Government Area of the state, Mrs Rachael Iriefo, and other staff
over what he described as their lack of seriousness in the management of the affairs of the council and lateness to work.
Governor of Edo State, Mr Godwin Obaseki
The governor, who paid an unscheduled visit to the council about 8:20a.m., regretted that of the 599 staff in the council, only 36 were on seat when he arrived, just as he attributed the
indebtedness of the council during the last administration to their alleged inefficiency and lack of focus and vowed to deal with the situation.
Obaseki regretted that despite efforts by the state government to uplift the finances of the councils, the workers have exhibited
un-seriousness but are quick to protest “against non-payment of salaries when the state government does not owe them a dime.
