In compliance with the stay-at-home directive of the State Government, officers on Grade Levels 02 – 07 in the State Public Service have been away from office since March 23, 2020. This measure was part of efforts put in place to combat the COVID-19 pandemic in the State.
The State Government has, however, reviewed the steps taken in containing the virus, including the provision of equipment and materials to prevent the spread in our offices. The Governor, His Excellency, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, has therefore directed all workers on Grade Levels 02- 07, hitherto at home to resume work with effect from Monday, November 2, 2020.
It is noteworthy that despite the stay at home order and the limited resources available to the government, Ekiti State Government has continued to demonstrate an unflinching commitment to workers’ wellbeing and career development.
I urge all the workers to show more dedication to duty in ensuring effective service delivery to Ekiti people as they resume.
All Accounting Officers should provide the necessary support for their staff and ensure compliance with all COVID-19 protocols in the various Ministries, Departments, and Agencies (MDAs).
