Awka, July 17, 2019 (MOI) Members of staff of the office of the Head of Service (HOS) have been urged to always stay alive to their responsibilities and shun lateness to work for enhanced service delivery.


``Certain misbehaviours call for certain degrees of implications as enshrined in the civil service rules,’’  HOS, Barr Harry Udu said during sensitisation exercise organised for staff at HOS Conference Hall, Jerome Udoji Secretariat Complex, Awka.


 A circular released by office of HOS has highlighted the implications of lateness to work and related offences as endorsed by his office.



Udu said that there was need for improved workers’ attitude to work as that was a hallmark for a qualitative civil service.


‘’The civil service is a humane service and we all know each other here and so, endeavour to keep the rules,’’ he said.


HOS pointed out that attitude to work had improved in recent times and enjoined them not to relent.


He, then, urged them to always notify their superiors about planned  absence from duty posts at all times as that would help to check irregularities.


The HOS reminded them of the verification exercise which had been ongoing, urging those yet to do theirs, to ensure it was a priority as would be criteria for payment of salaries subsequently.


Head, Administration Department (HOD) Mr Prince Nwude said the aim of the exercise was to furnish them with necessary information needed for positive attitude toward their jobs.


Nwude said the need for the required workers’ attitude to work was the bedrock for a committed and viable civil service.


He stressed that the directive from the HOS stipulates that workers must be at the duty post by 8 o'clock in the morning.


The HOD enjoined workers to endeavour to establish mutual relationship among themselves as that was a cardinal point for effective service delivery.


``Movement register has been on ground to help to regulate movement of workers at all times.


``Always seek permission from your superiors before leaving your duty post. Carry yourself to high esteem and endeavour to put up your best at all times,’’ he said.


Nwude commended the HOS for granting them opportunity to interact with him and assured of workers alignment to his directive. (MOI)
