– FG Releases new directives for civil servants over breah in COVID-19 guidelines
– Instructs level 14 officers and above to resume office
– Permanent secretaries and CEOs to reduce physical meetings
The Federal Government of Nigeria has shown a great concern over the breach of the guidelines released to curb the spread of COVID-19 at work places.
In a circular released by the Head of Service of the Federation, Dr. Folashade Yemi-Esan, the Federal Government has warned federal civil servants not to flout guidelines put in place to flatten the COVID-19 curve in the country.
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.
The minister however, in the circular, 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.”
She therefore reiterated that only officers in GL14 and above as well as officers on essential duties are to resume office while other are to work from home.
“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.” She said.
Yemi-Esan also warned Permanent Secretaries/Chief Executive Officers to reduce the number of physical meetings in the MDAs.
