Meanwhile, in a bid to ensure a hitch-free World Economic Forum this week, the Federal Government has approved that all Government Offices and Schools within the Federal Capital Territory, be shut down.
The presidency disclosed this in a press statement issued Friday by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, Senator Anyim Pius Anyim.
The statement however indicated that those on essential services, are to be exempted.
”Private Organisations with large number of staff may also wish to close down,” the SGF said.
Anyim further stated that this is to ease the flow of traffic within the city and enable participants carry out their assigned roles and participate actively at the World Economic Forum Africa.
