Double Trouble: Clock-in, Clock-Out Devices Arrive Primary Schools In Kogi State


Public Primary Schools in Kogi State are currently taking delivery of Attendance Clocking Machines (ACM) ready to be installed in the schools to checkmate teachers' devotion to service. 

The "clock-in, clock out device" as it is also called was a Kogi State Government initiative introduced in 2017 to calculate civil servants' salaries, rid absenteeism and prevent ghost activities. 

Since its introduction, the machines were earlier installed in all State Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs).

Meanwhile, the state government has taken it further as primary school teachers are getting closer to the reality of the machines, perhaps "getting digital."

A Senior teacher who confirmed the development to Ebira Reporters on Wednesday said the major schools under Okehi Local Government Education Authority are already getting theirs installed, while the other LGEAs are waiting to catch a glimpse of it. 

The teacher who spoke on the condition of anonymity seemed to be more concerned about salaries and arrears being owed by the government.

"Whatever they bring, I am fine with it and will do my best to be faithful. After all, those of us who still have some elements of zeal in us are still coming to work. But is government faithful to paying our arrears and salaries promptly?

"If you come to our schools, you will find that nothing is working," he said  

The  system allows workers clocking in between 7.30 and 8am for resumption, 12pm for break and 4pm for closure of work.
