Amaechi visits office unannounced... meets staff absent, others idle

In a bid to ascertain the level of commitment by staff of his ministry, Minister of Transportation, Rt Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi paid a surprise visit to staff in their different offices.

Amaechi was seen on Wednesday at about 3 pm, going round the offices, interacting closely with few of the staff on their duty posts in the nine-storey building housing the ministry.

The minister observed that at the time of his visit, most of the offices were already deserted by workers before the official closing time of 4 pm, while the very few present were either listening to music on their phones or outrightly dormant.

He frowned at the nonchalant attitude and act of truancy displayed by some of the workers towards their jobs for which they are being paid for by the Federal Government.

Amaechi also noted with dismay how most of the offices were unkempt, promising to meet with the Permanent Secretary and leaders of the Civil Service Union of the ministry over that and other issues.

He encouraged staff to give their best for effective work delivery and added that workers who do not add value to the ministry would be redeployed.
