... Ex-Federal Minister calls for caution

The breaking news of the FG's approval of 14 days paternity leave for male civil servants has attracted mixed reactions from Nigerian citizens yesterday.
According to Mrs Folashade Esan, Head of Fed civil service, the gesture is to allow fathers time to bond with the new babies (adopted or natural).

This "new normal" as the case may be,could be described as strategic for the social re-engineering strata of the society.
However, in his own reaction,a former minister of Housing, Chief Nduese Essien, expressed reservation for the new FG gesture describing it as another way of excessive holidays for the working-class people.
Chief Essien, a former House of Representative Member and a well-known labour friendly and civil society supporter,added that the country enjoys too much holidays at expense of hard work.
For example, if a particular civil servant in question is married to 4 wives(minimum allowed by islam),and fortunately, his wives delivered same year,that means that ( Fed. civil servant) would be entitled to 8 weeks of holidays in the year.

Said he:" There is no country in the world with this level of public work- free- days that can give adequate productivity ratio. Even the state of California,UK and Australia that enjoy paternity leave can't joke with the surplus work- free days and remain same at the economic turnover scale.
