In view of the ongoing efforts by Government to contain the outbreak of COVID-19 and directives by relevant agencies on the subject, we wish to inform you that the Department has taken proactive steps to realign its operations towards ensuring personnel safety and business continuity across the industry. These measures include limiting official meetings and engagements, restriction on travels & tours, promoting social distancing, enhanced screening as well as good personal hygiene.

Although this will impact on normal business operations, the Department will ensure continuous support to your operations through communication channels including video conferencing, online meetings, use of emails, phone calls, etc.

To this end, you may wish to transmit your correspondences to the Department through the e-mail address:  dpr@dpr.gov.ng

In light of the foregoing, you are hereby advised to adopt similar measures in your offices and areas of operations to assist in containing this scourge.

We crave your understanding on this matter as we look forward to returning to normal operational practices imminently.
