A number of unvaccinated civil servants were prevented from entering the Federal Secretariat, Abuja, by security operatives Wednesday.
The move follows enforcement of compulsory COVID-19 vaccination for civil servants in the country.
Security men manned the main entrance to the Federal Secretariat where they demanded either a vaccination card or evidence of negative PCR test before allowing the civil servants access to their offices.
Earlier, the Presidential Steering Committee on COVID-19 had given a directive mandating all Federal Civil Servants to be vaccinated or present evidence of negative PCR test for COVID-19, effective from December 1, 2021.
A number of states of the federation, particularly Edo State, has long implemented the strict vaccination regime, leading to protest and marches by aggrieved indigenes of the state.
