The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the 6pm to 6am curfew was imposed to reinforce the current State of Emergency in the state.
A statement issued on Tueday by the Secretary to the State Government, Mr. Kobis Aris, said workers would now close at 3pm.
“Sequel to declaration of state of emergency in the state by President, Commander-In-Chief and the imposition of 6pm to 6am curfew in the state, civil servants find it difficult to reach home before 6pm.
“Consequently, Governor Murtala Nyako has approved that the state civil service official working hours be adjusted from 8:00am to 3:00pm during the time of the curfew,” it said.
It also said the governor was holding consultations with various stakeholders in the state to generate support on the current security situation and ensure the restoration of peace and stability in the state.
