‘Don’t reveal circulars on social media’ – Ogun State Government warns civil servants
Ogun State Head of Service, Amope Chokor, has warned civil servants against revealing secrets and information about the activities of the state through social media.
Choker, during a meeting with the permanent secretaries in her office at Oke Mosan, warned workers in various agencies to desist from the habit of posting circulars or correspondences meant for internal consumption on social media.
She reiterated that it is now a crime for any staff to reveal official state secrets and anybody caught will be dealt with.
Choker said, according to Daily Post: “We are in the age of social media, and we just find our circulars on the internet; this is wrong. Tell our Officers that circulars or correspondences are not meant to be seen on the internet. Some officers don’t know that there is confidentiality in the civil service.”
“You have a responsibility to let them know, caution them. The system should not deteriorate because we are supposed to be the custodians of the ethics of the civil service.”
