All federal civil servants from Grade Level 14 and above have been ordered to resume at their duty posts from Monday, May 4.
The directive to this effect was contained in a memo signed and released on Thursday by the Head of Service, HoS, of the Federation, Dr Folasade Yemi-Esan.
The memo, addressed to all heads of Ministries, Departments and Agencies, MDAs, directed that the workers would work three days in a week, with the closing time pegged at 2pm.
Dr. Yemi-Esan stressed the observance of social distancing, use of face masks, hand sanitisers, and good general hygiene at all government offices, noting that all Federal Secretariats have been decontaminated and efforts were ongoing to do same in other public offices.
She said, “Further to Mr President’s broadcast on a phased and gradual easing of the lockdown measures occasioned by COVID-19, officers on Grade Level 14 and above and those on essential services are hereby directed to resume work with effect from Monday, May 4, 2020 in the first instance.
“Offices are to open three times a week – Monday, Wednesday and Friday – and close at 2pm on each day.”
