The association of senior civil servant has asked government for the extension of the complusory covid 19 vaccination till March next year.
The chairman of the association made this known on Tuesday in an interview with punch newspaper. He said it was necessary so as to enable all the civil servant to get vaccinated.
But the technical lead on the covid 19 vaccination said the deadline would not be extended.
The chairman of the association stated “Why are they forcing people to take the vaccines? They should focus on building the economy and other important things. You know some people are enriching themselves through these vaccines. What is going on shows that this government has lost focus. They don’t know what they are doing. We have an unserious government that takes delight in pursuing shadows.”
As labour union and the PSC disagreed on the deadline, federal civil servants across the country on Tuesday thronged vaccination centres to get vaccinated.
The workers had to abandon their works to get vaccinated. One of them said “ I have not taken the vaccine before. We have to come here (JUTH ) for the vaccines because we don’t have a vaccine centre at the federal secretariat .
“Even the State Secretariat close to us has a centre, but the people there were many. Since they said tomorrow is the deadline, we have to leave our offices to make sure that we are vaccinated because we don’t know what will follow after the deadline elapsed.”
Punch reporters also observed that people were not allowed into some offices inside the Secretariat without nose masks.
