FEC approves 14-day paternity leave 1

The Federal Executive Council (FEC) has approved the right to 14-day paternity leave for male federal civil servants.

This was disclosed to State House correspondents on Wednesday by the Head of Service of the Federation, Dr Folasade Yemi-Esan, after the week’s virtual FEC meeting presided over by Yemi Osinbajo (SAN) at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

She said the paternity leave is to allow for proper bonding between the father and a newborn, either natural-born or adopted, especially at the early stages of the child’s life.
