"All public servants on GL12 and below have been directed to continue working from home till the end of March 2021," the statement said.

Mrs Yemi-Esan said the latest directive was in adherence to the advice of the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19.

She stressed that the COVID-19 downward trend needed to be maintained, therefore, there was need for the extension of the work-from-home directive.
