Civil servants from Grade level 14 and above have been directed by the federal government to resume to work on Monday, May 4, 2020.
Head of Service of the Federation, Dr. Folashade Yemi-Esan, made this known in a circular made available to POLITICS NIGERIA on Thursday.
She noted that offices are to open three times a week – Monday, Wednesday and Friday – and close at 2:00pm each day as part of the gradual easing of the lockdown measures occasioned by COVID-19.
The HoS also ordered essential services workers to resume operation on Monday.
Yemi-Esan, however, urged the workers to reduce the number of visitors they receive in their offices, mandating them to provide handwashing facilities at every strategic location within their office premises.
The circular reads: “Further to Mr President’s broadcast on a phased and gradual easing of the lockdown measures occasioned by COVID-19, officers on GL 14 and above and those in essential services are hereby directed to resume work with effect from Monday, 4th of May, 2020 in the first instance.“
“Offices are to open three times a week – Monday, Wednesday and Friday – and close at 2:00pm on each day.”
