JUST IN: FG Orders Civil Servants To Resume Work
Federal civil servants from Grade Level 14 and above have been ordered to resume work from Monday, May 4.
The information was contained in a circular signed by Head of Service of the Federation, Dr. Folashade Yemi-Esan.
Yemi-Esan said the instruction to resume work was pursuant to the presidential directive for a gradual easing of the lockdown measures occasioned by COVID-19.
She disclosed that the Federal secretariat complexes have been decontaminated ahead of the planned resumption of the senior civil servants while public offices would also follow suit shortly.
“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,” she said.
“Offices are to open three times a week – Monday, Wednesday and Friday – and close at 2:00pm on each day.”
The head of service of the federation advised affected officers to limit the number of visitors they receive while hand-washing facilities should be located at every strategic location within their office premises.
