The management of the National Assembly says it has asked workers on grade level 12 and below to start working from home in line with the Federal Government directive.
The Director of Information for the federal parliament, Mr Rawlings Agada, stated this in an interview with our correspondent.
He said; “The National Assembly has also reproduced the circular issued by the Head of the Federal Civil Service and we have directed that it should be pasted on the departmental notice boards. It is a national directive and we have to ensure compliance.”
Agada said the leadership of the National Assembly and the management would meet to determine whether there should be a partial lockdown of the institution in line with the decision it took during the first lockdown.
The federal lawmakers proceeded on a five-week Christmas and New Year holiday on Monday after a special plenary they held to pass the 2021 Appropriation Bill.
