As part of preparations leading to the full reopening of the country’s economy, the Federal Government has asked civil servants on Grade Level 14 and above to resume work on a daily basis.
Also included amongst those to resume work, with effect from Tuesday, June 2, 2020, are workers on essential services.
The Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, Dr. Folasade Yemi -Esan, said the affected workers are expected to report to work daily, Monday to Friday from 9 am to 2 pm.
Yemi-Esan, in a statement signed by the Director of Information, Olawunmi Ogunmosunle, on Tuesday in Abuja, urged the officers to ensure full compliance with all safety guidelines in a bid to mitigate workplace transmission of coronavirus.
