The World is facing a health emergency. The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared COVID-19 a global pandemic. This requires new strategies and culture of ethics and hygiene that are reasonably fair and should be broadly agreed and understood by every staff of the Commission. The Director, Human Resource Management (DHRM) has already issued an internal circular in this regard. These measures are necessary to protect our staff and victims of human rights violations that come into contact with our staff throughout the Federation.
2. In this emergency situation, we have to show respect for rights, kindness, humanity, courage, selflessness and commitment to the common good. There is obvious clash of rights during emergencies. They are not just about rights but also human duties and responsibilities. We have to give up some of our rights to freedom of movement, worship, association, family life, livelihoods and economic entitlements in order to protect ourselves and others. Many will also suffer from measures designed to protect others that are more vulnerable than themselves.
3. Health workers and volunteers would be under massive physical and emotional stress due to great expectations from the anxious general public. Older people, unsalaried labourers, destitute and displaced persons may also face more deprivation and more challenges in coping with the situation. More than ever before, our resilience in the protection of basic healthcare rights will be challenged beyond limits.
4. We should, therefore, avert our minds to the ways and means of mitigating the worst effects of the rights that would be curtailed during emergencies of this nature.
5. We as one of the first responders must be conscious of the safety measures and equipment, show acts of kindness and courage particularly in changing our behaviour, accepting reasonable sacrifices and developing good spirit to boost the morale of the people around us. Accordingly, you are to comply with the earlier directives of both the Commission and the Federal Government on precautionary measures on COVID-19 and sensitize staff and complainants on the health implications as well as provide the basic sanitation materials as provided and directed, please.
