ABUJA – Workers at the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) on Wednesday resumed work as the two-day public holiday declared by the Federal Government to celebrate Eld-el-Fitri break ends.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that activities at the FCT Administration were in top gear as staff were busy carrying out their assignments.
Some of them said the turnout followed government’s strict stand to absenteeism and negligence to duty.
“The FCT Minister, Sen. Bala Mohammed, reported early for official duty today. So, there is no reason for anyone not to come to office since the break is over,” Mr Muhammad sule, the Assistant Director , Media, to the minister, sai.
Mr David Yohana, a staff of the FCTA, said it was normal for the staff to resume after the long break.
Similarly, activities at the ministries of Works, Environment, Lands, Housing and Urban Development had also resumed as most civil servants were seen at their respective offices.
Mr Theophilous Ogazechi, a Deputy Director, Ministry of Works, said most of the staff had returned to work.[eap_ad_2]
“Everybody are at their his duty posts; the turnout is encouraging.
“Time has changed and workers are growing with the trend; it’s no longer business as usual where workers fail to resume after public holidays.
“The turnout speaks for itself that civil servants are ready to serve. The offices are full and workers are at their duty posts.”
However, Mr Musa Danladi, said some of the workers may not resume until next week as they were on casual leave.
Normal activities at the Federal Secretariat had also returned as security personnel were stationed at strategic places to maintaining law and order.
Mrs Halima Abubakar, another government worker, however, said the celebration was not what it used to be as security challenges did not allow many to take their kids to recreational centres.[eap_ad_3]
