Ekiti female civil servants gets increases maternity leave period

Ekiti state government has increased the maternity leave period of women in the state Public Service from 12weeks to 16weeks.

The gesture was aimed at encouraging exclusive breast feeding for the first six months of birth and to promote good nutrition, the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Information, Youth and Sports Development, Mr. Kola Ajumobi said.


A statement by the ministry on Monday quoted Ajumobi saying that nursing mothers would, in addition, be granted two hours off duty every day for a period of six months from the date she resumed from maternity leave.

Ajumobi said the crèche at the state secretariat has also been invigorated to boost bonding between mothers and their children during official working hours without undue hindrance to performance and efficiency at the workplace.
