The statement further urged the Civil Servants to continue to pray at all times for economic prosperity of the State and to help beat the pandemic.
While briefing newsmen over the weekend Governor Muhammad Badaru Abubakar said the State government was carefully watching the situation for the possibility of calling civil servant back to work and opening schools.
“Certainly the next move is to assess the situation and see if we can recall all our workers back or some levels, we then analyse and see the compliance, then we decide on possibilities of opening schools and what protocols we will develop in the schools,” he said.
Newsmen reported that Jigawa state government had lifted all the lockdown orders, reopened markets and opened interstate movements.
This followed the successful discharged of all the 317 Covid-19 patients, and closing of all the isolation centers in the State.
