Enforcement of the Federal Government's Covid-19 vaccine mandate on its staff continued yesterday after it kicked off on Wednesday.

Unvaccinated federal Civil Servants and visitors to Federal ministries, departments and parastatals were restricted from gaining access to buildings.
Meanwhile, in Lagos, it was a different story as enforcement at the Federal Secretariat is yet to begin.

Our correspondent, Emmanuel Onwuka, observed activities at Federal Government and reports that workers went about their normal activities without any checks at the gates. 

Some who spoke on condition of anonymity say they were not prevented from accessing their offices on Wednesday like their Abuja counterparts.

Lagos

A Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa, says there is no provision in the law that empowers the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, to overrule the decisions of the #EndSARS Judicial Panel of Inquiry.

In a communique titled, Comments On LASG White Papers On Endsars Panel Reports, the senior lawyer also argued that no provision exists for the issuance of a White Paper under the law setting up the Panel.

Mr. Adegboruwa's communique says the government-issued white paper overlooked critical evidence that the panel considered and also misrepresented the findings and recommendations of the panel in many areas, to suit its narrative.

He says narratives that were skewed include a confirmation that soldiers shot at unarmed peaceful protesters on October 20, 2020, as established by Exhibit LLC A and the forensic expert from Sentinel.
