Coronavirus: Federal workers to work from home

With the escalating number of people testing positive to coronavirus, workers of the Federal government may be asked to stay away from their offices beginning tomorrow or Wednesday.
Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed gave the hint at a press conference in Abuja on Monday.
Wife of the President, Mrs Aisha Buhari, on Monday, morning tweeted that it made no sense for school children to stay at home while their parents go out to work as that would be counter-productive.
He said the Presidential Committee on Coronavirus met in the morning of today and made several stringent recommendations on how to contain the spread of the disease.
“Once those recommendations are approved, there should be announcements in on what next to do”, he said while noting, however, that government was mindful of the fact that most Nigerians were in the informal sector who must go out daily for survival.
