It will be recalled that the 6 p.m to 6 am curfew was imposed to reinforce the current State of Emergency in the state.
A statement by the Secretary to the State Government, Mr Kobis Aris and made available to journalists on Tuesday said workers would now close at 3 p.m.
”Sequel to declaration of state of emergency in the state by President, Commander-In-Chief and the imposition of 6 am to 6 p.m curfew in the state, civil servants find it difficult to reach home before 6pm.
”Consequently, Gov. Murtala Nyako has approved that the state civil service official working hours be adjusted from 8:00 am to 3:00 p.m during the time of the curfew,” it said.
It also said that 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.
