Telecommunications company MTN Nigeria, has directed its staff to work from home, and shut some of its stores across the country.
According to statement made available by the telco, the work-from-home policy takes effect from Monday.
The mobile operator, however, assured that this would not affect its network availability.
In a statement yesterday, MTN said: “We understand the vital role our network and services play in supporting people, organisations and institutions nationwide. Mindful of our responsibility to keep Nigeria and Nigerians connected to the people they love and the information and technology they need, we have adjusted our internal policies and made a few changes to how we serve our customers.
“From Monday 23rd March, 2020, most of our teams will begin working from home. Please be assured that our operations will continue running at full scale with essential staff working limited hours on-site.
“We also plan to announce the temporary closure of some of our stores. Those that remain open will operate reduced hours and maintain strict hygiene and social distancing measures.”
