Speaking at the end of the tour, Zulum said he met just 3 staff as of 8:30am when he got to the secretariat and only 135 staff were on seat when he left more than an hour later.

“I came to the secretariat at about 8:30am, the secretariat contain almost 12,000 staff unfortunately not more than 3 staff were on ground, at about 9:45am only 135 resumed office.

“I am aware that this is fasting period but I can understand if you find at least even two percent attendance. It is only in the ministry of justice where we met four people and one in the ministry of environment.

“I have given directives for the payment of leave grants to this 135 staff whom we met on ground.”

During his campaign, Zulum had said he would not condone indiscipline, especially in the state civil service.

At an interactive session at the University of Maiduguri in January, Zulum had said, “We have to fix the civil service and instill discipline, our biggest problem is indiscipline.”
