The Federal Government has mandated civil servants to
get vaccinated against COVID-19.
Boss Mustapha, secretary to the government of the
federation (SGF), said workers who refuse to get
vaccinated will be barred from assessing their places of
work.
Mustapha, who is also the chairman of the presidential
steering committee (PSC) on COVID-19, announced this at
a briefing on Wednesday.
He said starting from December 1, workers who do not
show proof of vaccination and or a negative COVID-19
result will be barred from government offices.
“With effect from 1st December, 2021, Federal
Government employees shall be required to show proof of
COVID-19 vaccination or present a negative COVID-19
PCR test result done within 72 hours, to gain access to
their offices, in all locations within Nigeria and our
Missions. An appropriate service wide advisory/circular
will be issued to guide the process,” he said.
