Ramadan: Jigawa Reduces Working Hours



The Jigawa Government has approved the reduction of official working hours in the state by two hours during the Ramadan.

This is contained in a statement issued on Tuesday in Dutse by Isma’il Ibrahim, the Public Relations Officer in the Office of the State Head of the Civil Service, Inuwa Tahir.

It said that civil servants in the state would report to the office at 9 AM and close by 3 PM between Monday and Thursday instead of 5 PM.

The statement said that the workers would report to work on Fridays by 9.a.m. and close by 1 PM instead of the usual 3 PM.

It enjoined civil servants in the state to use the Ramadan to pray for God’s guidance and blessings for the state.

The statement also urged civil servants to use the fasting period to pray for the peace and economic prosperity of the state and Nigeria at large.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) was established by the Federal Government of Nigeria in May 1976 to gather and distribute news on Nigeria and cover events of interest to Nigeria at the international level for the benefit of the Nigerian Media and the Public.

      Very backward. I am actually lost for words. Reduced working hours on whose account? When will these people realise that religion is a personal choice?
