Alhaji Isma’il Ibrahim, the spokesman, Office of the State Head of the Civil Service, in a statement on Tuesday in Dutse, said that civil servants in the state would report to office at 9.00a.m. and close by 3.00p.m. from Monday to Thursday, instead of 4.00p.m.
He enjoined civil servants to use the Ramadan to pray for God’s guidance and blessings for the state.
“The gesture is aimed at providing more opportunities to the civil servants to prepare for their Ramadan break and also to have more time to observe spiritual activities during the holy Month,” he said. (NAN)
