Jigawa State government has approved the reduction of official working hours in the State by two hours during the 2021 Ramadan fast.
Civil Servants in the State would now report to the office at 9am and close by 3pm between Monday and Thursday instead of 5pm.
Furthermore, Workers would report to work on Fridays by 9am and close by 1pm as usual.
The gesture is aimed at providing more opportunities to Civil Servants to prepare for their Ramadan break and also to have more time to observe spiritual activities activities of the holy Month.
It is hope that Civil Servants in the State would use the Ramadan Period to pray for God’s guidance and blessings for the State.
It is also hope that Civil Servants would use the fasting period to pray for the peace and economic prosperity of the State and Nigeria at large.
