In his address, the minister said from next Monday, civil servants are to report back to work. He further mentioned that for the economy of the country to improve, the civil servants must return back to work.

Micheal Makuei said the minister of cabinet affairs, Martin Elia Lomuro also briefed the council on the implementation of the Revitalized Peace Agreement with particular reference to the establishment of a state and local governments as stipulated in the agreement.
