0

 

The Federal Government will be closing down the federal secretariat complex Phases I to III from Wednesday afternoon because of an event marking the 60th independence of the country scheduled to hold at the Eagle Square on Thursday.

This was disclosed by the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, Folasade Yemi-Esan, in a circular dated September 29, 2020 and titled “Closure of federal secretariat Phases 1-3 on Wednesday, September 30, 200 at 2pm.”

The circular was addressed to all permanent secretaries and chief executive offices of Ministries, Department and Agencies operating from the three complexes.

As part of activities marking the anniversary, a Guard of Honour/Anniversary Parade is scheduled for the Eagle Square, Abuja.

The venue is located in between the high rise federal secretariat complexes, hence, the need to close them “for security reasons.”
