Ramadan: Jigawa reduces working hours for civil servants

The Jigawa State Government has approved two hours reduction in the official working hours of civil servants throughout the month of Ramadan.

This was contained in a statement signed by the State Head of the Civil Service, Alhaji Hussaini Ali Kila, and made available to newsmen in Dutse, the state capital.

The statement said civil servants in the state would now report to the office at 9 am and close by 3 pm between Monday and Thursday instead of 5 pm.

“Furthermore, workers would report to work on Fridays by 9 am and close by 1 pm as usual”.
He explained that the gesture is aimed at providing more opportunities for civil servants to prepare for their Ramadan break and also to have more time to observe the spiritual activities of the Holy Month.
Alhaji Kila stated that it is hoped that the workers would use the Ramadan period to pray for God’s guidance and blessings for the state.
