FCT restricts entry into Public Facilities over COVID-19 Vaccination.
Written by News Room on January 18, 2022
The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) has commenced the enforcement of the ‘No Vaccination Card” restriction or “Proof-of-Negative-Test-Result” for entry into public facilities.
The enforcement exercise which commenced on Monday comes more than a month after the Federal Government gave its own directive.
As early as 8:00 a.m. security personnel were seen manning checks at the gate of the FCTA Secretariat at Area 11 to ensure compliance.
Only civil servants with vaccination cards were allowed access into the facility.
The Senior Special Assistant to the Minister of FCT on Monitoring and Enforcement, Mr. Attah Ikaro, said the exercise became necessary to ensure that the spread of the infection in the FCT is curtailed.
Some of the civil servants alleged that they were not notified about the enforcement exercise and were taken unawares.
Mr. Ikaro, however, denied the allegation, insisting that adequate notice was given to the civil servants.
