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 Jigawa State Head of the Civil Service, Hussaini Kila, obtained by OYO NEWS.
According to the statement, 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.
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.
The government expressed hope that civil servants in the state would use the Ramadan period to pray for God’s guidance and blessings for the state.
