Coronavirus: Shehu Sani Knocks FG After It Ordered Workers To Resume Duty


Shehu Sani Reacts To Zamfara's Death Sentence For Bandits, Informants

The former lawmaker who represented Kaduna Central in the Senate, Shehu Sani has condemned the resumption order issued by the federal government to civil servants.

Naija News recalls the government in a circular on Thursday by the Head of Service of the Federation Dr. Folashade Yemi-Esan, ordered workers on Grade Level 14 and above as well as essential workers to resume on Monday, 4th May.

The government added that the Federal secretariat complexes have been decontaminated while efforts were still ongoing to do the same in other public offices.

However, Sani in his reaction to the development, kicked against the order, noting that it may put the lives of workers at risk as they may contract the COVID-19 virus.

Reacting on his Twitter account, he declared: “You asked Abuja-based Civil Servants to resume duty on Monday and mix up with their colleagues whom they don’t know their real status; and have you fumigated their offices?

“The COVID-19 funds is still with the CBN; the PTF are left with wearing masks, talking to the media and holding the keys of the gate; the lifting of the lockdown in Abuja on Monday is not guided by experts medical advice; It’s simply telling Nigerians ‘To Your Tents Oh Israel'”.
