NLC rejects compulsory COVID-19 vaccination

The Nigeria Labour Congress Monday rejected the decision of the federal government to make COVID-19 vaccination mandatory for workers.

NLC President Ayuba Wabba, while unveiling the COVID-19 vaccination advisory for federal workers, urged the government to use persuasion rather than force in vaccinating workers and the general populace against COVID-19.

The federal government had said starting from December 1, workers who do not show proof of vaccination and or a negative COVID-19 result would be barred from government offices.

Wabba called on government and other employers of labour to make arrangement for workers to access the vaccine at their workplace.

He said: “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 vaccine and keep themselves, their families and their colleagues at work safe and free form morbid threats of the coronavirus pandemic.”
