The Lagos state government has asked government employees not to continue work with Monday.

Representative Babajide Sanwo-Olu said just government employees on Grade Level 15 or more are to continue work with Tuesday, May 5.

Sanwo-Olu provided the request on Sunday, May 3, during a question and answer session ahead of the unwinding of the COVID-19 lockdown in the business city on Monday, May 4. He said the postponed resumption is a purposeful endeavor to forestall stuffing in the state.

The Lagos State Governor further unveiled that solitary crisis laborers and those on basic obligations would be permitted to chip away on Monday.

He said: “In amending the work guidelines earlier issued, which stopped members of the public service from Grade Level 1 to 12 from going to work; we have had to review this position and we are extending the directive to all civil servants, regardless of level. All civil servants must stay away from work on Monday.

“On Tuesday, only officers from Grade Level 15 and above have express permission to come to work. All other essential officers that may need to be at work will be informed by the Accounting Officer of each Ministry as may be required.

“From Monday on, there will be a curfew from 8 pm to 6 am and all movements within these hours are prohibited, except for people on essential services, which are agro-products, petroleum products, relief materials, and food supplies.

“We want to use this as a demonstration of our commitment to the gradual easing of the lockdown. We do not want people to rush out tomorrow and see the easing of the lockdown as an attempt to believe that the spread of the pandemic is all over.”
