Unvaccinated civil servants and visitors were barred from gaining access into the Area 11 Garki Secretariat in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
Naija News reports that officials of the FCT Administration started enforcing the policy of the Federal Government of ‘no vaccination, no entry’ into any of its establishments as of 7 am.
Speaking with reporters on Monday, Senior Special Assistant on Monitoring, Inspection and Enforcement to the FCT Minister, Ikharo Attah, said that the enforcement would be sustained to ensure maximum compliance.
He said there was no going back on enforcement of the directive, adding that pictures of vaccination cards on phones and photocopies would not be accepted.
Attah said that an enforcement team had been deployed at the premises of FCTA and secretariats and departments to monitor compliance.
He said: “We will be following up seriously on this and we have also warned people not to snap their card on the phone as we want to see the original card, don’t show us vaccination card on phone.
“We will be asking for identity cards and we would match the cards with your COVID-19 vaccination card so that you don’t bring someone else’s card as your own.”
