It's simple; NO WORK, NO PAY!

The month of March is looking bleak for 10 public school teachers in Ebonyi State.

Their lateness to work and absenteeism is going to cost them their March salary.

Hyacinth Ikpo, Chairman of the Ebonyi State Universal Basic Education Board, made the disclosure in Abakaliki on Wednesday.

Ikpo said that the some of the teachers were late while others were absent in their various schools when the team visited.

The chairman said the government would not condone truancy and laxity on the part of teachers in the state.

According to him, lateness by any government worker without permission from the appropriate authority constitutes a breach of civil service rules.

Ikpo said that all the affected teachers would forfeit their March salaries to serve as a deterrent to others.

He directed the head teachers in the affected schools to issue queries to those affected.
