The Senior Special Assistant to the minister of FCT on Monitoring, Inspection and Enforcement, Comrade Ikaro Attah says the responses from FCTA staff showed 70% compliance as the enforcement of no jab, no entry enters day two.
Attah who conducted journalists round the FCT Departments and Agencies to check the level of compliance by the staff, said the turn up for the COVID 19 vaccination since yesterday had been commendable.
He said, “Like yesterday, we have massive turn out of staff that are fully vaccinated, we have gone to FCT departments and agencies and have seen that the staff are fully vaccinated. What we will continue to insist is that the vaccination is not by force, we are not forcing people to take the jab of the vaccine. We are only telling people to come with either COVID-19 negative result test, or prove of vaccination.
“We are happy that there is high level of compliance, as of today the enforcement hit 70%, with the impressive turn up and the ongoing vaccination we are almost there”.
On those staying away from their offices, Attah explained that the permanent secretary (FCTA), Mr Olusade Adesola said such staff will be treated as someone who stay away from work.
According to him, “The FCT permanent secretary is clear about that, anyone who stays away from the office will be treated as someone who is on the run, and the civil service rule is clear about it.”
