NLC cautions FG in using force to get Civil servants vaccinated.
Written by News Room on October 26, 2021
The Nigerian Labour Congress has cautioned the Federal Government against the use of force in the enforcement of workers’ vaccination.
The President of the NLC, Ayuba Wabba gave this charge during a briefing on COVID-19 vaccination advisory for Federal Civil Servants in Abuja on Monday.
However, the NLC President urged the Federal Government to employ the use of persuasion and conviction rather than force.
It would be recalled that the Presidential Steering Committee on COVID-19 on October 13, 2021, announced that Federal Government workers without proof of COVID-19 vaccination or result of a test done within 72 hours will be denied access to their offices starting from December 1, 2021.
