The Speaker of the 7th Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Aniekan Bassey, have charged management and staff of the Assembly to see government business as a personal and private business, adding that whatever affected government, affected them.

Hon. Bassey gave the charge during  an enlarged meeting with the management and staff of the state House of Assembly.

"I want you to see government business as a personal and private business because whatever affects government, affects every individual...handle things that concern government as if it were your own," he charged.

Urging staff to embrace diligence in service, the Speaker reminded them that the reward for this are enormous. He also encouraged them to hold on to the codes of ethics in service.

The Speaker assured staff of the Assembly, that he will work effortlessly to build a conducive working environment that staff would be proud of.

"I will prefer to work and I will not be tired."

Mrs Umoren stressed the need for staff to be punctual and remain in their duty posts till official closing time. She said it was a misconduct for staff to be absent from work without permission and that negligence of duty attracted penalties.

On his part, the Admin Director, Mr Ime Moffat, informed staff that the newly inaugurated Joint monitoring committe in the Assembly, will embark on monitoring exercise.
