Former Chairman, Human Rights Committee, Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), Port Harcourt Branch, Mr. Augustine Ojekudo, on Tuesday decried Ekiti Gov. Ayo Fayose’s punishment to workers that reported late to work.

Ojekudo told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Port Harcourt that the corporal punishment the governor meted out to the state civil servants, especially directing them to kneel down was not necessary.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Fayose was reported to have ordered the workers to kneel down for reporting late to work in Ado Ekiti.

Ojekudo noted that the governor’s action was not only crude but condemnable and said such humiliation should not be taken kindly.

“For a governor elected by the people to punish workers, is the height of torture, torment and intimidation.

“The matter should not be left just like that; he was elected for the good of the people only to humiliate them.”

According to Ojekudo, the children of affected workers will feel bad seeing their parents and guardians on television kneeling down.

He, however, said the workers in the first place, should not have obeyed the governor’s ‘crude’ order. (NAN)
