Apply Persuasion Rather Than Force For Covid-19 Vaccination- NLC To FG

The Nigerian Labour Congress on Monday appealed to the Federal Government not to use force in the enforcement of workers’ vaccination.

The President of the NLC, Ayuba Wabba made this charge during a briefing on COVID-19 vaccination advisory meeting for Federal Civil Servants in Abuja on Monday.

Waab said this in reaction to the Mustapha-led Presidential Steering Committee on COVID-19 on October 13, 2021, which announced that Federal Government workers without proof of COVID-19 vaccination or result of test done within 72 hours will be denied access to their offices starting from December 1, 2021.

The NLC President charged the Federal Government to use persuasion and conviction as its tools rather than force.

In his words;

“The truth is that despite being imperfect, the COVID-19 vaccine has given all of us a better chance of fighting the virus and staying alive.

“I urge workers all over the world to take advantage of the COVID-19 vaccines and keep themselves, their families and their colleagues at work safe and free from the morbid threats of the corona pandemic.

“We urge government and other employers of labour to make special arrangements for workers to access the vaccine at the workplace.

“We urge that the tool of persuasion and conviction be used rather than force to get workers and the general populace to take the vaccine.
