The Oyo State Head of Service Mrs. Ololade Agboola has charged Civil
Servants in the State to comply strictly with Covid-19 guidelines
as they are resuming to their various offices.
In a statement issued and signed by her media officer, Abiodun Atilola, the Head
of Service admonished Civil Servants to adhere strictly to the guidelines for preventing the spread of Covid-19.
The guidelines according to the statement include the use of facemasks, regular washing of hands/use of sanitizers, observation of social distancing and prevention of movement from one office to another except for very important official purposes.

A month after, the directive was
relaxed and Staff from Grade Levels 13 and above were asked to
return to work under strict Covid-19 protocol.
The Head of Service said that the present administration under the
leadership of His Excellency, Governor Seyi Makinde (FNSE) had been paying salaries to all Civil/Public Servants up till the resumption date despite the fact that the workers had been at home for the past three months.
Mrs. Agboola also stated that the State Government had decontaminated all offices in the State Secretariat and other
Government Agencies outside the Secretariat with provision of hand
sanitizers, Liquid Hand Wash Soaps, Face Masks for all levels of Officers and Hand Washing Machine for all Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) in the State.
She then urged all and sundry to support the State Government in the fight against Corona Virus pandemic by following all Covid-19 protocols in the State.
