By Adedapo Adesanya
The Katsina State Government has directed civil servants in Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) to continue to report to work from 10 am to 2 pm in the afternoon on weekdays.
This was disclosed in a statement by the Head of the state’s civil service, Mr Idris Usman Tune.
The directive followed approval from the state governor, Mr Aminu Masari, on the effort to curtail the spread of COVID-19 in the state.
Mr Tune also asked the civil servants to maintain the directive and continue to offer services to members of the general public until further notice.
He explained that the state government was making efforts through relevant bodies and institutions to contain the spread of the virus in the state.
The Head of the Katsina Civil Service then appealed to the workers to practice social distancing, washing of hands in their various places of work and use hand sanitizers at all times.
He expressed optimism that the workers will not only maintain regular hygiene but help to educate the populace on the way forward in curtailing the spread of the dreaded virus.
Katsina is one of the 19 states in Nigeria with COVID-19 with five cases as at Tuesday morning.
