Oyo State government under the leadership of Engr Seyi Makinde has revealed its plan to approve paternity leave and extend maternity leave for civil servants.

Should the approval scaled through, the maternity leave for nursing mothers will become six months.

The Commissioner for Women Affairs and Social Inclusion, Alhaja Faosat Sanni stated this at a 2-day workshop on ‘Safe Motherhood’, organized by Nigeria Association of Women Journalists (NAWOJ), Oyo state chapter, held at Dapo Aderogba Hall, NUJ Press Center, Iyaganku, Ibadan.

Sanni said the extension was necessary so that adequate care would be given to the newborn while the mothers also have the privilege to take care of themselves, as the present administration under the leadership of Engr. Seyi Makinde supported every key aspect of motherhood in order to promote well being of women and children in the State.

She emphasized that the administration has been promoting, educating, empowering, protecting children and women from all forms of abuse, while also supporting them financially, especially for those in need of financial help.
