Jigawa State government has reduced the official working hours in the state by two hours during the 2023 Ramadan period.
This was contained in a statement signed by the State Head of the Civil Service, Hussaini Kila and issued to newsmen by his Public Relations Officer, Ismail Dutse.
The statement read as follows “civil servants in the state would report to the office at 9 am and close by 3 pm between Mondays and Thursdays instead of 5 pm”.
“Furthermore, workers would report to work on Fridays by 9 am and close by 1 pm as usual,” he said.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.
The government hopes that civil servants in the state would use the Ramadan period to pray for God’s guidance and blessings for the state.
