The Federal Government has directed all civil servants to return to work from Monday, October 19, 2020, after several months of staying at home due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
This was disclosed by the Chairman of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, Boss Mustapha; and the National Coordinator, Sanni Aliyu, during the press briefing of the task force on Thursday, October 15.
Prior to this point, only civil servants of Salary Grade Level (SGL) 12 and above as well as those on essential duties have been going to work. However, the PTF has now directed that civil servants below SGL 12 can now resume work.
In order to ensure social distancing, the PTF directed Ministries, Departments, and Agencies to ensure that they alternate the days the civil servants will be at work.
