Cross River state Governor orders civil servants to resume work on Tuesday

The Governor of Cross River state, Ben Ayade, has directed that all civil servants in the state from Grade Level 10 and above should resume work on Tuesday, April 14, 2020 even as he further extends the lockdown by another two weeks.

The initial stay-at-home directive was expected to have ended on April 11th 2020.

He gave the directive in a press release signed by his chief media adviser, Christian Ita, maintaining that ‘the no mask no movement policy’ and ‘no mass gatherings’ were still in full force.

Ayade directed that all returning civil servants are to receive nose masks from the COVID-19 Response task force through their respective permanent secretaries.

He warned that no resident or indigenes must import the masks but must patronise the locally made, especially the ones from the state garment factory.

“All nose masks to be used in the state must be locally made, with the place of origin clearly marked

“The sale of masks made by the Cross River State Garment Factory is prohibited. Masks are to be distributed free of charge

“All entry and exit points (air, land and water) into the state hereby remain closed for a further two weeks.”
