Civil servants were directed to be at their various duty posts on Friday and disregard any information to the contrary.
The Lagos State government says there is no public holiday declared in the state on Friday, March 8, 2019.
The clarification became necessary after reports emerged that the state government had declared Friday, March 8 as public holiday for civil servants as part of activities in the build-up to the governorship and National Assembly elections scheduled for Saturday, March 9, 2019.
A statement signed by Kehinde Bamigbetan, the Lagos Commissioner for Information and Strategy, on Wednesday, directed civil servants to be at their various duty posts on Friday and disregard any information to the contrary.
According to Bamigbetan, just as earlier announced by Dr. Idiat Adebule, the Lagos Deputy Governor, all public and private schools in the state are expected to proceed on the second mid-term break on Thursday and Friday.
Academic activities are scheduled to resume on Monday, March 11, 2019 in accordance with the revised school calendar for 2018/2019 academic year.
