The Head of Service, Hakeem Muri-Okunola, had previously issued a circular to staff on April 27, 2022, stating that the dates of May 2-4 had been authorized as public holidays.
The state administration reversed course when Minister of Interior Rauf Aregbesola designated May 2-3 as public holidays and authorized the same dates, advising workers to reject the first circular.
“Public servants in the state are therefore to disregard the resumption date stated in CIRCULAR NO 018 of the 27th of April, 2022 and note that work resumes on Wednesday, 4th of May, 2022 at 08:00 am prompt,” reads the second circular, titled “Re: Year 2022 Workers’ Day Celebration/Id-El-Fitr Public Holidays.”
