Governor Fayemi Approves Six Months Maternity Leave For Ekiti Workers by BrandSpurNG: 7:40am On Feb 12
The Governor of Ekiti State, Dr 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, 2020, is aimed at improving maternal health and encourage nursing mothers to observe the six months exclusive breast feeding campaign of the United Nations Intervention Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF).

The six months exclusive breast feeding campaign is aimed at reducing to the barest minimum, infant and maternal mortality rate as well as facilitate work-life balance for female workers in the state.

The Ekiti State Government continues to show strong political will towards ensuring gender inclusiveness This policy is one of many other frameworks in place aimed at promoting the rights of women and children.

Why the whole of six months? When we are still making babies, my wife won't stay for more than 6 weeks at home, she will go back to her business within 3-6 weeks. No healthy woman will stay at home for 3 months doing nothing.

3 months of maternity leave and 3 months of half working days ie 9am - 2pm should be a better option.

If you want to pleased some lazy women, they will ask for 1yr 6months of leave and will resume work with another 3 months pregnancy

Good. Women really needed much time to take care of this infants before leaving them at the mercies of Nannies, housemaids who are most time devil's incarnates at the absence of the parents of these kids. Other states should follow up.

Re: Governor Fayemi Approves Six Months Maternity Leave For Ekiti Workers by petnuel(m): 8:07am On Feb 12
6 months is really quite long. That's like working half a year and getting paid for a full year. Private companies will never implement this...Meanwhile, this is better than stomach infrastructure of the failed Fayose and failed PDP era
