It was made known that the Federal Government has granted the introduction of 14 days paternity leave for public servants.
This approval which was done at the federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting, is to allow fathers to properly bond with newborn babies or foster or adopted children.
This was established by the Head of Service of the Federation, Folashade Yemi-Esan, while briefing State House correspondents after the FEC meeting presided over by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on Wednesday at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Yemi-Esan also said that the annual leave would henceforth be calculated based on working days instead of calendar days.
According to the News Agency of Nigeria, Yemi-Esan said that the Annual Performance Evaluation Review (APER) and Promotions had been replaced with a new Performance Management System.
She said, “We presented a memo on the revised Public Service Rules (PSR), and we are all aware that the PSR is an old important tool in the public service; it is what governs the actions of public servants at work.
