The Federal Government has ordered civil servants to resume work on Monday.
This was contained in a circular issued by the Head of Service of the Federation, Dr. Folashade Yemi-Esan.
The affected workers affected by the directive include officers from Grade level 14 and above.
The circular reads in part:
“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.“
According to Dr. Yemi-Esan, “offices are to open three times a week – Monday, Wednesday and Friday – and close at 2:00pm on each day.”
The Head of Service also advised the officers to limit the number of visitors visiting their various facilities and to ensure that hand-washing items are available within their premises.
