Sokoto's Governor Aliyu forced to drive himself due to driver's late-coming
Governor Aliyu is yet to announce what he plans to do to his driver and other staff who resumed office late.
The governor was reported to have driven himself to the Government House around 8:30 am, because his official driver was too late to do his job.
"I drove myself to the office because my driver did not come in time," a report by Daily Trust quoted the governor as telling journalists on Thursday.
When the governor reached the Government House and realised several other staff were late to work, he ordered the security guards to lock the gate and stop anyone from entering.
The gate remained closed till 1 pm on Thursday, with many senior staff and aides of the governor affected.
"This is not a matter of joke. I promised the people of Sokoto State that I would not betray their trust nor allow any public officers to do so.
"You either work or return our money. You cannot collect our money without justifying it," the governor said.
Aliyu did not announce what he plans to do to his driver and other affected staff.
Since his inauguration on May 29, the governor has been vocal about making governance more efficient.
Last month, he disguised himself and visited the Sokoto Specialist Hospital in a keke. He said he was interested in getting first-hand information about the quality of services the hospital provides to residents.
