The Federal Government has warned federal civil servants not to disobey guidelines set toflatten the COVID-19 curve in the country.
This was in a circular signed by the Head of Service of the Federation, Dr. Folasade Yemi-Esan.
Yemi-Esan reminded the workers of two previous circulars issued in March and April 2020, on the measures to guide against further rapid spread of Coronavirus.
However, in the circular, she put to noticethat “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 important to say that only officers on GL14 and above; and officers performing the essential services, are to report for duty. As much as possible, other categories of officers should be encouraged to work from home.”
Yemi-Esan warned Permanent Secretaries/Chief Executive Officers to decrease the number of physical meetings in the MDAs
