By Agbo Amauche, Abakaliki



The Chairman, Local Government Service Commission (LGSC) in Ebonyi State, Chief Romanus Nwasum, has charged workers in the State to be more dedicated to their official duties or face serious sanctions.

He gave the warning when he led members of the Commission on routine monitoring to some Development Centers in Ebonyi Central Senatorial zone of the state including Ezza South, Ezza South East, Imoha, Ezza North and Ezza West among others.

He noted that the era of truancy and ghost workers had gone, adding that whoever that violates the ethics of work would be disciplined accordingly by the Commission while the productive ones would be rewarded.

He stressed the need for the workers to reciprocate the salaries they are receiving from the State Government under the leadership of Chief Francis Ogbonna Nwifuru, whom he described as workers friendly Governor by attending to work regularly so as to achieve the set objectives.

At Ezza South DC where the chairman and his team visited around 11am and saw only one staff, also at Ezza South East DC where few workers were on ground at the time visited, the chairman frowned on the Development and directed all the principal officers to report to the commission next day and explain why there were absent on duty, stating that the Commission under his watch won’t tolerate such attitude.

According to him “Our mission is simple, we just want to find out whether you come to work, if one checks the strength of the staff here as to compare with those that are present now, it means that workers do not come to work as they supposed.
It is very unfortunate that none of the principal officers is available, this shows that the leadership of the DC is weak, thus, I want the workers to be alive to their duties by coming to work by 8am and dismiss by 4pm’

“In our next visit any staff that is absent will give way for the new ones to come in and we shall start by stopping the persons salary followed by asking him to go and face the business he or she is doing that is more important than coming to work” he said.

At Ezza West, Ezza North and Imoha Development Centers, Chief Nwasum eulogized the workers for being dedicated to their duties and urged them to sustain the tempo by showing example to others for optimal service delivery and commended the Coordinators for living up to their expectations.

However, he urged workers across the State to remain more committed and dedicated to their assigned responsibilities towards achieving the desired results.


Member 1 of the Commission Arch. Augstine Nwechara, charged the workers to reciprocate the generosity of the state governor, Chief Francis Nwifuru with punctuality and regularity.

Member 5 of the Commission, Barr Kelvin Ituma enjoined the workers to show high level of commitment to their duties by contributing their quotas towards the growth and development of the State.

Meanwhile, the Coordinator of Imoha DC, Mr. Chika Igboke described the monitoring as good development and added that he had earlier reminded the workers on the need to complement the state government efforts at the grassroot and assured the commission that he would ensure workers in the DC come to regularly.

The administrative officer in Ezza West DC Mr Mgbabor Boniface expressed glad over the visit, noting that it would spur them to be more alive to their duties.
