The Governor, who gave the directive while briefing newsmen at the Government House in Dutse, stated that the latest decision followed the successes recorded in the fight against COVID-19 across the state so far.
It had been reported that the state government earlier directed civil servants from grade level 12 and above to resume work and to fully follow all the preventive measures in office.
Badaru explained that for the past 16 days, the state had not recorded a single case of coronavirus and the only case on admission was tested negative and was discharged.
The Governor added that an indigene in Yobe state Isolation center recovered and was discharged as well, stating that with current development, the state has no active case of COVID-19.
“With these now, we can say we have no active case now in the state, and we are hoping to remain so in future”
He, however, emphasized that all civil servants from all grades are directed to return to work from tomorrow and must ensure that they follow the COVID-19 preventive measures, including social distance, wearing a face mask and personal hygiene.
Badaru warned that the state will take serious action against anybody found violating the COVID-19 preventive protocols.
