Ekiti okays six months for maternity leave 1

Ekiti State Governor Kayode Fayemi has approved six months (180 days) maternity leave for female workers in the state public service.

 

This is in line with the administration’s determination to key into global best practices that will improve the quality of lives of the citizens.

 

The new policy, which takes effect from February 1 is aimed at improving maternal health and encourage nursing mothers to observe the six months’ exclusive breastfeeding campaign of the United Nations Intervention Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF).
