Covid-19: Public Health Sample Collectors in FCT Down Tools Over Non Payment_Ada Nkong

Public health sample collectors in the FCT have downed tools over non payment of their allowances.

A source who spoke on condition of anonymity said, their grievance is that despite the huge risk involved in sample collection, for seven weeks running, they have not been paid while some other frontliners have been paid.

As a result of the boycott of their duties today, community testing will suffer a setback and emergency calls will not be responded to.

As at the time of this report, it was impossible to get the FCT task force chairman on phone to certify why the payments were delayed.
