The Federal Capital Territory Administration has said civil servants without proof of vaccination and negative coronavirus test results done within 72 hours would not be allowed to enter their offices as from January 17.

The administration also said all visitors and clients coming to do business are required to comply with this directive.

This is coming after the Federal Government through the National Primary Healthcare Development Agency asked state governors to enact and enforce vaccination mandates for local and state government workers.

In a statement on Tuesday by the Senior Special Assistant to FCT Minister on Media and Strategic Communication, Abubakar Sani, he said a  circular by the FCTA Permanent Secretary, Olusade Adesola has been sent to the relevant agencies for enforcement.

He said the move was part of measures to curtail the spread of the deadly virus in the FCT.

The statement was titled,”  FCTA to bar unvaccinated staff, visitors from offices”.

It read,  “As part of efforts aimed at curtailing the spread of the COVID-19 in the FCT, 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, 17th January, 2022.

“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.

“A circular signed by the FCTA  Permanent Secretary has been sent to the Executive Secretary of the Federal Capital Development Authority and all Mandate Secretaries, the Coordinator of Abuja Metropolitan Management Council and the Coordinator of Satellite Towns Development Department, Heads of all Departments and FCTA Agencies to officially inform them. ”

He 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.

Sani, however, disclosed that to ensure strict compliance with the directive, the Senior Special Assistant on Monitoring, Inspection and Enforcement in collaboration with the Director of Security Services have been mandated to mount surveillance in all entry points.
