Following the hike in the price of petrol on account of the removal of subsidy, a Federal Government agency, the Public Complaints Commission, has mulled work from home for its workers.
This was contained in a memo signed by the secretary to the commission, Hajiya Mamman, which was dated July 18, 2023 and titled ‘Adjustment of work schedule’, sighted by our correspondent.
The memo, which was addressed to all state commissioners read, “Due to the recent fuel increase which represents fifteen per cent (15%) increase from the amount we have been buying since the inception of this regime with its attendance (sic) consequences on everybody in Nigeria and our staff in particular.
I am directed to request you to work out a work plan and attendance structure that will enable staff to work painstakingly. The office should be divided into two (2) teams, for equitable interchange within the week with Mondays being general attendance for everyone.
“This is to ameliorate the hardship being faced by staff due to the fuel subsidy removal. This arrangement will last till the situation improves. Please, accept the Honourable Chief Commissioners esteemed regards.”
The continued hike in the pump price of petrol has caused untold hardship for most Nigerians.
