National Assembly cautions staff on financial regulations abuses, others

National Assembly Complex Abuja.

The National Assembly Management has cautioned members of staff against acts capable of causing financial embarrassment to the image of the National Assembly and the Nigerian Public Service.

The Clerk to the National Assembly, Mohammed Omolori, gave the warning at the unveiling and presentation of the Code of Ethics in National Assembly Service, on Monday in Abuja.

Omolori who charged members of staff on the need for strict adherence to Public Service Rule, said such would enable them to discharge their duties with diligence and honesty.

He said: “One of my first major assignments on assumption of office as the Clark to the National Assembly was to take stock of so many variables in respect of human resources and productivity.

“This is necessary as it is obvious that competent and well-grounded staff is key to the realisation of our overall objectives in the formation and implementation of service goals.

“The exercise revealed the existence of gaps in the staff attitude and understanding of Public Service Rule, Disciplinary Code and Ethics.

“Following the stock taking, a disciplinary committee was set up to come up with strategies for ensuing attitudinal changes in staff,” he said.

Omolori said the committee considered suitable options and strategies and eventually came up with the publication of a pocket friendly “Code of Ethics” to serve as a means of enlightenment and constant reminder to staff.
