The management of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Thursday warned it staff against begging and scrambling for money from visitors to the party’s National Secretariat.
The staff was addressed by the Director of Administration, Alhaji Abdullahi Gashua, as he handed warning to the staff that henceforth anybody caught with such act would be severely punished.
The National Secretariat of the ruling party is usually a heaven of sort for politicians who troop into it either to curry political assistance or government of the day’s support and patronage.
APC Secretariat staff, had in the past expressed displeasure over poor remuneration and delays in payment of their salaries, a situation they said had turned them to ‘beggars at work’.
Embarrassed by the continued begging attitude of its staff, the APC management held a discreet meeting with the staff on Thursday and a stern warning was issued to all to desist from the act of begging for financial assistance from visitors.
