NLC Strike: National Assembly shut down, gates under lock

The gates into the National Assembly Complex in Abuja have been shut down by parliamentary workers who have joined the ongoing protests by the labour unions.

Recall that the Nigeria Labour Congress and Trade Union Congress announced a nationwide indefinite strike starting Tuesday despite a court order restraining the unions from doing so.

Recall that the unions last week issued a nationwide strike notice over an assault on Joe Ajaero, the President of NLC, on November 1 2023, in Imo State.

As of 12:23pm on Tuesday when newsmen visited the National Assembly complex, all the gates into the complex were under lock and key.

Many workers were seen stranded at the entrance of the National Assembly, however, our correspondent reports that despite the lockdown, plenary is still ongoing in the House of Representatives at the time of this report.
