COVID-19: Stay away from our premises, FCTA warns unvaccinated staff, visitors



The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) has come out to issue a warning that all unvaccinated staff would be barred from accessing FCTA premises with effect from Monday, January 17, 2022.

This warning was contained in a circular signed by the FCTA Permanent Secretary, Mr Olusade Adesola, and issued on Monday, January 10, 2022.

The circular was addressed to the Executive Secretary of the Federal Capital Development Authority (FCDA) all Mandate Secretaries, Coordinators of AMMC, STDD as well as Heads of all Departments and FCTA Agencies.

In a statement made available to pressmen by Senior Special Assistant on Media to the FCT minister, Abubakar Sani, Mr Olusade said the circular was in line with the one issued earlier by the Federal Government allowing staff on grade level 12 and below to resume duty.

According to the statement, the circular with reference N0. HCSF/3065/Vol.1/107 dated November 26, 2021, also directed that all employees are required to show proof of Covid-19 vaccination or present a negative COVID-19 PCR test result done within 72 hours on a continuous basis as part of measures to curtail the spread of the virus.

The circular reads in part that: “All members of staff are therefore required to show evidence of COVID-19 Vaccination or present a negative COVID-19 PCR test result done within 72 hours, failure of which such members of staff will not be allowed to the office premises commencing from Monday, January 17, 2022.”

He added that in view of the fact that FCTA premises are public buildings, all visitors and clients coming to do business are required to comply with this directive.

The Permanent Secretary also said free vaccination points have been made available in all FCTA premises by the Health and Human Services Secretariat (HHSS) to provide opportunities for staff and visitors alike to get vaccinated.
He, however, warned that persistent non-compliance or refusal by staff to be vaccinated would be treated in accordance with the relevant provisions of the Public Service Rules (PSR).

Mr Olusade explained that in order to ensure strict compliance with this circular, the Senior Special Assistant on Monitoring, Inspection & Enforcement in collaboration with the Director of Security Services have been mandated to mount surveillance in all entry points to prevent violators from gaining access to offices of the FCTA from Monday, next week.


FALSE! Yoruba Not An Official Language In Brazil

Claim: A national newspaper and multiple online platforms claim Brazil has adopted Yoruba as its official language and that the language would be included in primary and secondary schools curriculum.

Verdict: The claim is false. The content of the article published by these online platforms is not new; it has been recirculated several times and has been debunked.
