Lagos Clarifies on Workers that Can Resume On May 4
The Lagos State Government has given the go-ahead to government offices and establishments re-open on Monday, May 4.
This was made known in a statement signed by the Head of Service to the Lagos State Government, Hakeem Muri-Okunola, on Friday.
Muri-Okunola confirmed that Governor Jide Sanwo-Olu, has approved the reopening of the public offices, in a bid to ease the COVID-19 lockdown in the state.
According to him, officials on grade levels 12 and below will continue working from home.
Sick workers have, however, been advised not to resume work.
“Officers on Grade Levels 12 and below must continue working from home, unless otherwise directed by their Accounting Officers, with the exception of Frontline Responders and other essential Health Workers, irrespective of Grade, as well as Enforcement Agencies,” Muri-Okunola said.
“The Secretariat and other Government Establishments would remain shut to members of the public and non-staff who are advised to conduct their affairs through other channels such as telephone, emails and online platforms.”
He stressed that all public servants must abide by the terms of the curfew, which starts 8 p.m and ends at 6 a.m, as stated by Sanwo-Olu.
Government offices have been directed to provide liquid soap with water at the entrance of their offices and in toilets for regular and thorough washing of hands.
