Nigeria says covid-19 is still a big threat to life and warned civil servants to be guided by the guidelines rolled out by the relevant authorities to mitigate its spread.
A circular issued today, Monday, by the Head of Service of the Federation, Dr. Folasade Yemi-Esan reminded the workers of two previous circulars issued in March and April 2020, on the measures to guide against further spread of Coronavirus.
She noted that the flow of both the staff and visitors to offices is very high which, sadly, indicates that the directives in the circulars in reference were being observed in breach.
“It has, therefore, become very important to reiterate that only officers on GL14 and above; and officers performing essential services, are to report for duty. As much as possible, other categories of officers should be encouraged to work from home.”
Yemi-Esan also warned Permanent Secretaries/Chief Executive Officers to reduce the number of physical meetings in the MDAs but to apply virtual meetings and webinar where necessary
