As the federal government steps up efforts to curb the spread of coronavirus in the country, officials have been asked to work from home as a precaution against the virus.
In a note published by the head of the department Folasade Yemi-Esan, all officials from level 1 to 12 were invited to work from home with effect from Tuesday March 24 until further notice.
According to Yemi-Esan, the FG is concerned for the well-being and safety of all government officials, as it is for other Nigerians.
The memo reads in part;
“All public servants are, therefore, strongly advised to follow the measures being put in place by government to curtail the spread of the pandemic.
“As a further step to check the spread of COVID-19, all non-essential public servants on grade level 12 and below are to work from home with effect from Tuesday 24th March, 2020 until further notice.”
