The SGF disclosed that as from December 1, civil servants without proof of COVID-19 vaccination or negative test results would not be allowed to enter their offices.

He said, “With effect from 1st December, 2021, Federal Government employees shall be required to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination or present a negative COVID-19 PCR test result done within 72 hours, to gain access to their offices, in all locations within Nigeria and our missions. An appropriate service wide advisory, circular will be issued to guide the process. “

He added that over the last four weeks, tests have shown that the trend of infection was going down in some states while in others it had gone upward, noting that a combined total for testing by PCR and RDT now stands at about 3.141,795 million persons.

Mustapha also disclosed that talks were going on with the United Arab Emirates to resolve the impasse.
