Hope you are keeping safe and well.
It’s been five weeks since the Federal Government of Nigeria imposed the lock down in some States in Nigeria and six weeks since we as a Firm commenced full remote working. Whilst in many respects, this new way of life is becoming strangely ‘normal’, I have no doubt that it comes with great pains and cost for many businesses.
As we all continue to adapt and cope with the effects of COVID-19 whilst doing all we can to flatten the curve, it is my hope and prayer that you, your families and your businesses remain healthy, strong and resilient throughout this period.
Following the nationwide broadcast by the President of Nigeria, His Excellency, President Muhammadu Buhari, on 27 April 2020 which approved a phased and gradual easing of lock down measures in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, Lagos and Ogun States with effect from Monday, 4th May, 2020, a number of businesses have with effect from today commenced resumption of business activities towards putting the economy back on track.
With the phased easing of the lockdown in line with the Federal Government Directive, we are conscious of the need to maintain strict precautionary measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Bearing in mind your safety, the wellbeing of our personnel and the wider society, we have decided to continue with “full remote working” until such a time as we think it appropriate to re-open our physical offices.
We solicit your cooperation towards ensuring that we continue to provide our services to you with the aid of our robust technology infrastructure. All our clients’ meetings will continue to be hosted online to avoid the risk of large or close range meetings. We also encourage you to strictly adhere to all precautionary measures as specified by Nigeria Centre for Disease Control and the World Health Organisation.
We will continue to monitor the situation and communicate a date for the re-opening of our physical offices in due course.
I thank you for your understanding and continued custom.
Please stay safe.
