He, however, added that emergency workers and those on essential duties would be allowed to work on Monday. Sanwo-Olu said:

“In amending the work guidelines earlier issued, which stopped members of the public service from Grade Level 1 to 12 from going to work; we have had to review this position and we are extending the directive to all civil servants, regardless of level. All civil servants must stay away from work on Monday.

“On Tuesday, only officers from Grade Level 15 and above have express permission to come to work. All other essential officers that may need to be at work will be informed by the accounting officer of each ministry as may be required.

“From Monday on, there will be a curfew from 8pm to 6am and all movements within these hours are prohibited, except for people on essential services, which are agro-products, petroleum products, relief materials, and food supplies.

“We want to use this as a demonstration of our commitment to the gradual easing of the lockdown. We do not want people to rush out tomorrow and see the easing of the lockdown as an attempt to believe that the spread of the pandemic is all over.”

Meanwhile, Governor Sanwo-Olu has released details of how offices, businesses, markets and stores would operate from monday when the lockdown is relaxed.
