Dr. Edu who was a guest this morning at Hit FM, said though His Excellency, Senator (Prof) Ben Ayade has earlier directed all civil servants on grade level 10 and above to resume work three weeks ago, he has as at yesterday issued a directive that all workers in the state should resume work today, 4th May, 2020 to continue to sustain productivity and the economy of the state now and post COVID -19.
In his directive, he noted that strict adherence to all the precautionary measures earlier given must be religiously followed and any MDA that defaults, should be sanctioned immediately. So, all our taskforce enforcement unit would be going out to the various offices, ministries, departments and agencies to monitor the directives given by His Excellency.
We are also appealing to all Cross Riverians to stick to the above precautionary measures as we work to keep Cross River state COVID 19 free!
