BREAKING!!! Security Officers Stop Civil Servants Without Proof Of Vaccination And Negative PCR Tests From Abuja Federal Secretariat

 

Civil servants and the general public without proof of vaccination and negative PCR tests are currently being prevented from accessing government buildings in Abuja.

Weetalknaija.com.ng had reported that the Boss Mustapha-led presidential steering committee on COVID-19 had announced in October that civil servants without proof of vaccination and negative PCR tests would not be allowed to access government buildings from December 1, 2021.

The Association of Senior Civil Servants of Nigeria had however asked the Federal Government to extend till March next year, today’s deadline for the compulsory vaccination of civil servants, a move which the PSC had described as “impossible”.

As early as 7:00 am on Wednesday, security men manned the main entrance to the Federal Secretariat where they demanded either a vaccination card or evidence of negative PCR test before allowing the civil servants to enter the Secretariat.

Some of the unvaccinated civil servants however questioned the Federal Government’s decision saying COVID-19 vaccination should not be made compulsory but a matter of choice.

Others said they are willing to get vaccinated.

The enforcement of the mandatory vaccination comes amid fears of the new Omicron coronavirus variant.

Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) said on Wednesday that three cases of the variant have been confirmed in the country.

The health agency said the three cases of the variant were discovered through genomic sequencing, linking the cases to three passengers from South Africa.

The NCDC boss, Dr Ifedayo Adetifa, revealed that since reports of the emergence of the Omicron variant, the Federal Ministry of Health, through the NCDC, has intensified public health response measures to COVID-19.

Meanwhile, Canada has banned travellers from more African countries including Nigeria over fears of the spread of the new Omicron variant.
