He made this known while addressing Christian leaders of the second phase of COVID-19 vaccinations.

He said: “I am glad to inform you that from dis Phase 2 of the COVID-19 vaccine roll-out, we have introduced Sunday vaccination.

“This is to ensure members of the Christian community who may not have had access to the vaccine for whatever reason, are given an opportunity to be vaccinated at their worship places.

“I must say that feedback from teh field is very encouraging and I sincerely thank all Christian leaders who have given the vaccination team access to their churches and their members to receive COVID-19 vaccine during Sunday service.

It can be recalled that the Nigerian Government had announced that it is working to make COVID-19 vaccination mandatory for civil servants and public servants in the country.

The government also said that the process would be gradual, as it will make sure that vaccines are made available and accessible to all before implementing the policy.
