Government officials in Jigawa respond to employees’ refusal to return to work following the Eid holiday

Posted by

It has been claimed that civil personnel in Jigawa State have chosen not to come back to work after the Eid holidays ended on Thursday.

The Federal Government had originally scheduled a two-day celebration holiday for Tuesday and Wednesday, according to NICKNAMES, but since the crescent moon was not visible on Monday, the holiday was postponed until Thursday.

In the wake of the Eid celebrations, many government employees have failed to return to their regular tasks, raising questions about the effectiveness and efficiency of government operations.

The Head of the Civil Service in Jigawa State, Alhaji Muhammad K. Dagaceri, has responded by urging all civil servants in the state to be punctual and dedicated to their work.

During an unannounced visit to several MDAs at the State Secretariat to oversee the return to work following the Eid-el-Fitr Sallah holiday, the Head of Service made this statement.

During his tour of the State Secretariat, Alhaji Muhammad K. Dagaceri observed that many civil servants have not yet reported for work following the three-day Eid-el-Fitr Sallah celebration, even though some of them were present and prepared to go to work.

The Head of Service expressed his disappointment with the situation and stressed the need of being committed and dedicated to one’s work, saying that absenteeism hinders the provision of vital services to the people of Jigawa State.

He stressed the need of public officials keeping to professional standards and making a priority list of their duties.

He urged the state’s civil servants to repay Governor Malam Umar A. Namadi’s kindness.
