The leadership of the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) on Monday rejected the Federal Government planned enforcement of COVID-19 vaccination on workers and Nigerians.

Ayuba Wabba, the NLC President, expressed Labour’s position on the matter while unveiling the COVID-19 vaccination Advisory for the Federal Civil Servants in Abuja.

Recall that the federal government had hinted it would enforce COVID-19 vaccination on its workers effective, December 1.

But reacting to the suggestion, Wabba tasked the government to appeal to the people to uptake the vaccine rather than force them.

” 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 the 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.”
