The Director of Press at the House of Representatives, Mr. Isaac Redd, has made a startling revelation, asserting that some staff of the House of Representatives are engaged in “bad work habits” during official working hours. Mr. Redd, who made the revelation recently when he appeared on the Truth FM Breakfast Show, named some of the “bad work habits” as some employees playing cards game and accessing face book during official working hours.
But the House director of press did not disclose the names of the staff of the House of Representatives, who according to him, are involved in such “bad work habits”.
However, he warned that such approach towards work at the House of Representatives “will have to stop.”
He disclosed that there are plans being put in place for staff assigned at the House of Representatives to be motivated so as to discourage them from further engaging in “bad work habits.”
In order for the staff at the House of Representatives to be effective and efficient, Mr. Redd further disclosed, the House of Representatives will shortly address issues regarding their staff benefits to commensurate with what is expected of them.
At the same time, the House spokesman has said the leadership and management of the House of Representatives will shortly retire some staffers of that august body who he said have “worked and passed the years of working.”
He added that the management and leadership of the House was looking in the direction of ensuring that those who have reached the retirement mark “will be retired with due and appropriate benefits.”
Meanwhile, some legislative observers have described the “bad work habits” of some staff of the House of Representatives as “strange happenings” at the Lower House.
Speaking on condition of anonymity, the legislative observers warned that the “bad work habits”, if not stopped, could bring the Legislature, particularly the House of Representatives into public disrepute.
Against this backdrop, they recommended that the plenary of the House of Representatives, which is the highest decision making body of the Lower House, to leave no stone unturned in urgently putting a complete stop to the “bad work habit” so as to maintain what they called the integrity of the House of Representatives, yea the entire Legislature- First Branch of government.
