Many senior officials were absent when Governor Babagana Zulum of Borno State undertook a surprise tour of some local government areas in the state within the week, meeting almost empty secretariats.

The governor visited six local government areas in southern and central Borno to monitor the quality of governance at the grassroots and assess ongoing projects.

It was gathered that he departed Maiduguri on Wednesday and drove to Chibok, Bama, Gwoza, Damboa, Konduga and Askira-Uba where he passed the night before heading back to the capital on Thursday evening. The state government had two weeks ago, directed top officials and senior civil servants to report to work after easing the lockdown to prevent spread of coronavirus.

Zulum took the officials by surprise as not even his security details knew he was travelling far from the capital. The governor said in one of the local governments: “None of the heads of department was around, neither the secretary nor other principal officers are reporting for duty. Look at the secretariat, termites all over, an indication that nobody is operating in the secretariat.

“We have been pleading with them for quite sometime to be operating from these local government areas so that citizens will feel the impact of governance at the grassroots but from all indications, many are not listening. “We will take punitive measures because we cannot allow this system to continue.”

It was gathered that the governor had in each of the six local government areas visited council secretariats and taken a roll call of absentee officials.

hmm!

The fear of coronavirus is the beginning of wisdom.

There's no cause for alarm.

Isn't that what happens in most local governments?
They are mostly idle most of the time in various LG secretariats.

I know of one secretariat in Benue state, only a few workers come to work and what they do at work is ; play Whot, drink bossman gin and eat groundnut.
By 2 p.m, they are all heading back to their farms

Perhaps, if they are granted autonomy, they would be busy fixing their LG, awarding contracts and looting (of course)

Those of us who did NYSc in the north will not be surprised.

The only active office I saw back then was the LG chairman office and financial department.

Low key Local Government activities can be found in many LGs in Nigeria but the North case is the worst.


Another call for Restructuring

Apart from the fasting and the Virus, most government workers hardly come to the office because no one is there to monitor them

Ok, i don't know whether the governor is now councilors that have the mandate to checkmate government at the grassroots, empower the councilors and enlighten them to what they should be doing.... You won't need to risk your life traveling to the den of bokoharam...
